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...
Wishing you all a Happy and Safe 4th of July.Leave a comment...
I really love fireworks, so we will watch them tonight. Barbecue is especially popular today and July is National Grilling Month. Typical barbecue sauce can be quite salty (high in sodium).
Below is a link for my Barbecue Sauce Recipe in the cookbook. It can be a bit spicy with the Calypso. (You can cut back on the Calypso and use more Gusto to make it milder) It still has a kick with Gusto but not hot. Great sauce for meats, vegetables, and dipping.
If you want more of a smoky BBQ Sauce try adding just a drop or two of Wrights Liquid Smoke (my favorite is Hickory) and I like their other flavors including Mesquite and Applewood. It has no sodium but adds really good flavor.
