Seven Simple Steps to reduce Salt intake:

  • Try increasing Sweet Potato, Butternut Squash or Carrots for natural sweetness.
  • Tomatoes will give you natural bitterness.
  • Instead of cream add a dollop of low fat Crème Fraiche or Yoghurt to your soups for sourness
  • I love the zest of a lime on certain soups just before serving, you will find the aroma of sour and bitterness again sends strong tastes to the brain distracting the salt craving.
  • Herbs such as a Lemon Thyme, Coriander & Basil all deliver Sweet, Sour and Bitter Flavours in a natural and nutritious way.
  • Break the trend of your office environment by bringing in your sandwich and soup which you have control over. Others will follow and habits of eating over salted lunches will change.
  • Make your own Wheaten Bread and Soup once a week and freeze in portions for easy defrosting and reheat.
