More Herbs, Less Salt Day (August 29)
Put away the saltshaker and season your meals with herbs instead.
August 29th is National More Herbs, Less Salt Day. Substituting herbs for salt can increase the flavor and health benefits in your meals.
Use turmeric, fresh ginger and fresh garlic for added flavor and anti-inflammatory benefits.
Season your tomatoes, chicken and green beans with oregano.
Get the most flavor from fresh herbs by crushing or rubbing them just before adding them to the dish. Use them as rubs or in marinades to increase flavor.
Plus, fresh herbs can make your meal look and smell more appealing.
A bit more information: Though we can’t grow all possible salt substitutes, we can add a few to our pantry. Try using cinnamon in place of salt. Season your soups, squash, and carrots with nutmeg. Try cloves for seasoning fruit and beef and curry powder or cumin on corn, tomatoes, and fish.
