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...

Here are 3 tips that can make a BIG difference in a low sodium diet:
3. Fresh Minced Parsley. This must be Italian Flat Leaf Parsley, not French Curley. Most folks think of parsley just to make the food look pretty. Not true. Freshly minced parsley, adds a fresh, brightness to food, as well as making food look pretty. Fresh herbs can be somewhat delicate, so add this towards the end of your cooking, and you can sprinkle more on top when serving.
Note: Use only the parsley leaves, not the stems, as the stems are usually too tough. Add the stems to water you are boiling for pasta, or rice or potatoes, soup, etc., as they will help add flavor to the water.
