Recipe: Italian Spice Mix
Ever wonder why salt makes you thirsty? Or how this affects your blood pressure?
I can tell you right now that cutting down on the salt you sprinkle from your salt shaker probably isn’t going to have the effect you think. The problem is rarely the salt on your table. The problem, well 75% of the problem is the salt that’s already in the food you eat.
Now let’s cue the low-sodium recipe! Here’s a super-simple way to make your own delicious Italian spice mix.
Recipe (Low-Sodium Spice Mix): Italian Spice Mix
- 1 tbsp dried oregano
- 1 ½ tbsp dried basil
- 1 tbsp dried parsley
- 1 tbsp dried thyme
- ½ tbsp onion powder
- ½ tbsp garlic powder
Mix all ingredients and place in a sealed container. Sprinkle where you would normally use salt. This is especially good with Italian-style dishes.
Serve & enjoy!
Tip: Feel free to play around with the ingredients. If you hate oregano, leave it out. If you love garlic, add more.
