On a low salt diet, but want flavor?
My mom was a registered nurse and insisted on eating healthy long before it was a fad. We always had several vegetables with our meals and she avoided excessive amounts of salt. We weren't on a low sodium diet, but she wanted us to learn to enjoy other seasonings than salt.
The following is a recipe for a saltless seasoning. My mom would make it up in advance and keep it in the cabinet ready to use on salads, meats and vegetables. The seasoning brings out the flavors in the food and even as kids we loved it.
- ½ tsp Garlic powder
- ½ tsp Onion Powder
- ½ tsp Paprika
- ½ tsp Pepper
- ½ tsp Dry Mustard
- ¼ tsp Powdered Thyme
- ¼ tsp Celery Seed
- Mix all the ingredients together and place in a closed container. Sprinkle on food as desired.
