Food is one of the things that brings joy into many people’s lives. Unlike other creatures, food is more than just a necessary nutrient to humans, we like our food to be packed with flavor. Unfortunately, our desire for flavor can lead us to make unhealthy choices about what we eat. Adding too much salt is one of those choices. Most people consume much more sodium than they need, and this can lead to all kinds of negative health issues such as dehydration and hypertension. Luckily, there is a way to cut down on your salt intake without losing the flavor you love. Herbs can add just as much to a dish without any negative side effects at all. More Herbs Less Salt Day is a holiday that celebrates the health benefits of substituting herbs for salt and encourages people to do so whenever possible.
