Let’s get real for a minute. I love salt. Really, I do. As a kid, I would get a plate of fries, move them around to clear a space, then dump a little hill of salt on that empty space, lick my fry, dip it in the salt, and eat it.
I’m not alone though, because the majority of Americans consume far more sodium than recommended. Most of that sodium consumption comes from heavily processed foods, which are so easy and readily available, and inexpensive too, it’s hard to avoid it. If you’re cooking at home, though, there are simple ways to table the salt, and among my favorites is using lemon.
There are simple substitutions you can use for any meal you’re making, just take a look at the infographic below (and hello, pin it so you can check back later)!
Today I’m sharing my signature Spanish Frittata recipe, using lemons instead of all that salt. It’s still as delicious as ever, just healthier! So table that salt, my friends, and get cooking.
Little steps, my friends, little steps to help improve your eating habits and improve your health. Aim to get between 1500-2300mg of sodium per day, and your body will thank you for it. And as always, if you have concerns about your health and dietary choices, seek the counsel of a physician or dietitian. But in the meantime, whip up my Spanish Frittata and enjoy!
