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...
Traditional Snacks and Low Sodium: There are unsalted versions available of the most common snack foods. Look for unsalted potato chips, unsalted corn chips, popcorn without salt, unsalted nuts, no salt added nut butters, low or no sodium crackers. Taro root chips or banana chips are good. Many of these snacks are baked or dehydrated instead of fried. You can crush crackers, nuts, chips, etc to use for breading meats, vegetables and more. Be creative. Try adding Table Tasty or other seasonings for different flavors. Note: Avoid any trans fats and hydrogenated oils. These are very bad for the heart.Leave a comment...
