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...


First step:  Take the salt shaker off the table and don't add salt to your cooking.  Just don't do it.  Tip:  You don't need to add salt to water when cooking potatoes, rice, pasta or even oatmeal.  Your toppings will be enough to flavor them.   

Just eliminating salt from the table and your cooking is a huge step in reducing the sodium in your diet.

One teaspoon of table salt is 2368mg of sodium, let's round that to 2400 mg of sodium.  A serving size is 1/4 teaspoon which would be 600mg of sodium. So just a teaspoon of salt is 2,400 mg. That's over the total daily sodium allowance of 2000 mg on a typical low sodium diet.  This total actually should be 1,500 mg or lower. This does not include the sodium from other foods eaten throughout the day.

You can do it...
