Flavorful Low-Sodium Family Meals

Do you eat too much salt, does your family salt shaker seem empty all of the time? We don't eat salt, much to my sister and parent's dismay, since I can never find the salt shaker when they come for a visit!

You may ask, isn't your food bland? What about flavor? Believe me, the food on my table has no blandness, and full of flavor! Why use so much salt, that's what they use to thaw the ice on the road and on veins don't need that, thank you very much!

Have you tried Mrs. Dash? She's spicy, flavorful and found in tiny little bottles! You can find her here.  One of my favorite recipes to use Mrs. Dash on is fish.  Simply, healthy and delicious.

Here's what you need:
-Enough fish for the family, I like Cod, tilapia or Orange Roughy, but any kind will do.
-9 x 13 pan or size appropriate for the amount of fish
-Olive or canola oil
-Mrs. Dash lemon-pepper seasoning

Thaw your fish, best to thaw in fridge, drizzle your pan with oil and place fish on top.  Sprinkle the fish with Mrs. Dash's lemon-pepper seasonings and bake at 400 degree's for about 1/2 hour or until the fish is flaky!


There are so many ways to season your food without using salt, be creative, use your imagination and think how healthy you'll be!

Mrs. Dash has many wonderful, delicious recipes on the website, they have a monthly menu take make your life easier, and WOW how cool is this, they even have marinades...I did not know that!

Here's another recipe for you to try:

Straight from my brother the chef!

Chicken Alfredo 2 pieces of chicken breast
Alfredo Noodles
1 C Whipping cream
1/2 C Butter
Mrs. Dash Italian Medley
Mrs. Dash Zesty Garlic Herb Marinade

Marinade your chicken for an hour or so, then grill or fry and cut into strips.

Boil your noodles, and while waiting for your water to boil, melt your butter in a sauce pan, gently stir in whipping cream, let simmer and thicken while your pasta is boiling.  Feel free to spice up the sauce with a bit of Mrs. Dash, it may take a bit for the sauce to thicken but be patient! 

How about a veggie on the side?  Lightly cook some broccoli, just until tender to keep the nutritional value, and sprinkle with your favorite blend of Mrs. Dash!
