Hi Everybody, Debbie Benson here...
This is where I can tell you about what I know, what I have found out, and here I can also rant a bit.
Since I was a little girl I have been aware of sodium, both high and low levels, as you learned in my first Season-It Newsletter 3 Tips That Help A Low Sodium Diet. Starting Benson's Gourmet Seasonings has been a dream come true.
As I learn and find helpful information, tips, products, recipes, and websites, I will share the information with you here. Then, you can follow-up and do your own research and make your own, more informed decisions regarding your health, or the health of a loved one. Knowledge helps you and gives you the power to make better decisions.
It's not just about what you don't do or can't have. It's also about things you can or should do or add to your diet that can make a difference. Here we go...

Make your food more colorful. You've heard it said "We eat with our eyes first". Sometimes we get tired of eating the same thing all the time. Just by adding more colors, the whole dish changes. Plus you are adding not just color but also flavor and nutrition.
Try starting with colorful bell peppers. Instead of the just using the regular green bell peppers add a red or yellow. (I know some of you say the green doesn't agree with you so you don't use any bell peppers. That's why I took the green bell pepper out and just use red bell peppers in my seasonings.) Try the other colors as they are milder, sweeter and add the wow factor to anything you add them to. Whether it's a cooked dish, a salad, even as crudite's (or dippers) for a dip.
They might be more expensive but you can stretch them for different dishes. Just a few slices or dices of the different colors can make a colorful impact. Especially, when you want to spruce-up dinner, are entertaining, a party, even when tailgaiting. Give them a try!
Tip: Fresh is best, but you can also find frozen cut bell peppers in most grocery stores.
Note: We all should be supporting our local farmers markets. Look for new varieties of the freshest produce both colors and flavors.
