Salt is the most common culinary seasoning in the world. Please plan to taste food before you automatically reach for the salt shaker. You don’t really know how much salt is needed and this could insult the person who prepared the food.

Salt is available in unlimited quantities from the sea and rocks. It is also naturally present in our bodies and many foods. For some of you, too much salt is a major health issue causing hypertension. Some salt intake is essential to our healthy eating plans, but the bottom line is that we have too much sodium in most of the foods in America.
