Would you ever think you could make pasta salad taste better without using a grain of salt?
At Engage Organics, we do it all the time and serve it at our demos. In fact, people have lined up to get a tasty pasta salad sample.
Yes, we agree salt is a hard habit to break.
But when you can’t tell that salt has been omitted in our delicious pasta salad, we challenge you to detect the lack of salt in everything you cook, when you reach for the Engage Organics Salt-free Blends instead of salt.
The reasons to nix salt are now front and center in the media.
In fact, a recent study by Dareiush Mozaffarian, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor in the Department of Epidemiology at Harvard University announced that one in ten people die from diseases resulting from eating too much sodium.
Of course, the debate is ongoing about the research results from Harvard, because the study did not measure the actual cardiovascular deaths related to salt intake. But the findings should not be dismissed easily.
Obviously, the American Heart Association has made it clear that we should consume less than 1500 mg of sodium per day, yet most Americans consume twice that amount.
So, engage health instead of disease. Make a few substitutions and spice up your meals with flavor instead of salt by trying these tips:
• Marinate poultry, beef, fish, and pork with Engage Organics Tuscany-Mix before grilling. The harmful free-radical damage that occurs when food is cooked at high temperatures is diminished by as much as 84 percent when rosemary is used in a marinade first.
• So, rub poultry, meat, fish, pork or other meats with olive oil and sprinkle Tuscany-Mix liberally on all sides. The Rosemary, thyme, and oregano combination is not only health enhancing–but it brings incredible flavor to your grill. No salt needed!
• Sprinkle a few shakes of Mexi-Mix on your air-popped popcorn. The capsaicin helps cranks up your body temperature so your burn more calories.
• And if your blood sugar spikes, start putting Sweet-Cinn in your morning cup of joe. The cinnamon will help prevent those spikes by improving the way your cells metabolize glucose. A sweet, tasty trick that makes you feel like you went to Starbucks and indulged.
There is no need to give up flavor when you are watching your health. In fact, herbs and spices contain more antioxidant punch than many fruits and veggies.
Your vibrant health counts on it. Engage Organics–the right thyme!
