Mrs. Dash: Variety of Seasonings Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Ashley #19!


According to a new survey, 71% of Americans still don’t know the recommended daily amount of salt intake, with the average American consuming nearly double the suggested amount of salt per day, far more than the recommended daily intake of 2,300 milligrams (about one teaspoon), which is equivalent to about 7.6 pounds of salt per year. These new statistics are quite troubling so it is no surprise that salt is now seen by many as the “new trans fat".

  • 58% of Americans are consuming the same if not MORE salt than two years ago, despite persistent health warnings.
  • 70% of people surveyed usually add salt while cooking or preparing a meal, and 55% usually add salt without consulting a recipe, or add salt to prepared foods at the table, and half add salt to their food even before tasting.

However, some people have taken heed to the warnings to lower sodium intake:

  • 68% of Americans say they usually eat low sodium foods when cooking at home.
  • As many Americans change their diets for health reasons, 61% of those people have cut back on their salt intake.
Mrs. Dash sent me some really great varieties to try. My personal favorites were the Table Blend and Fiesta Lime. I use this in place of salt and it tastes really good. I love the table blend on my baked potatoes and veggies.

It's important to lower sodium intake to control hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Learn more about reducing sodium in your diet.
