My Salt Free Seasonings

My Salt Free Seasonings! (red pepper flakes, minced onion, Mrs Dash, Cayenne Pepper, Black Pepper)

This year my hubby and I have set a goal to cut back on sodium by not salting our food as best we can. I grew up on Adobo, bouillon cubes, and salt and I’ve learned to cook with them. Hubby and I haven’t salted our meals for going on 2 months. And this includes adding ketchup and/or marinades. It’s been hard and our palates often desire the grand flavor that salt adds but we are committed.

In my research I’ve learned that sodium is the leading cause in high blood pressure, sodium may also lead to stroke and is a culprit in cardiovascular disease. We are healthy right now but by not being conscious we could easily be in the hospital at some point. Prevention is the greatest cure. I don’t want my health journey to be just about my weightloss but about healthy decisions overall. This is another Non Scale Victory.
