Whether on a salt restricted diet or looking to eat healthier one very easy way to stick the recommended total daily intake of 1500 mg of sodium is to eliminate so called seasoned salt and flavored salts (i.e. onion or garlic salt) and switch to using the real onions and garlic or using the “powder” instead of the “salt” — and making your own salt free blend of seasoned salt.
Salt Free “Seasoned Salt”
4 teaspoons ground black pepper, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper (optional or to taste), 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon dried parsley; combine and store in air tight container; use equal portions as seasoned salt in recipes or to taste.
IF too peppery adjust to suit personal preference! The great thing about making your own seasoning blends is that you can alter them to your liking.
