Celebrate More Herbs, Less Salt Day With Our Wonderful Herbs And Spices!

Posted by Charlotte Miskell on

Take it from the leading suppliers of spices and herbs, sticking to a healthy diet is more important now than ever before. The list of unhealthy foods is endless and overconsumption of these unhealthy foods can be nothing but problematic for you with numerous health risks arising. One of the most common unhealthy ingredients in food nowadays is salt. Consuming too much salt raises your blood pressure which can lead to numerous health problems such as heart failure, heart attacks and strokes, all of which are the leading causes of death in the UK. People use salt in their diet for numerous reasons, though the most common excuse is ‘it makes food taste nice’. Although somewhat true, what if we told you there is a perfectly healthy alternative that can make your food taste even better? Using herbs and spices in your recipes as opposed to salt is a great way of staying healthy yet benefiting from the tastiest foods, though many people choose on ditching spices and herbs and soon go back to salt. This date, the 29th of August, marks ‘More Herbs, Less Salt Day’, so we thought we’d commemorate this day by offering up our best alternatives to salt with our delicious herbs and spices.

Some feel that cooking without salt can be tricky and will more or less lead to tasteless dishes. This can be the case for those who don’t know what to use as an alternative to salt. One of the most versatile herbs and spices that you can use instead of salt and that we supply is Oregano. Oregano is one of the most used herbs and spices across the globe and can be incorporated into numerous recipes to really compliment the taste. You will normally find Oregano more than any other herbs and spices in tomato based dishes such as pasta and pizza for example. As well as tasting fantastic, Oregano features a number of vitamins that your body requires to stay healthy. It is also capable of helping when you’re suffering from a cold, a headache and even toothache. When compared with Salt, Oregano would be the logical choice for many simply because of the taste and the health benefits.

Another appetising herbs and spices alternative to salt is the tremendously tasty Thyme. If you’re looking for reliability and quality when you’re cooking with herbs and spices, Thyme is the perfect choice for you. Although the versatility of this herb means it can be incorporated into most dishes, it really thrives in a variety of foreign cuisine like Spanish and Italian. The sweet flavour of Thyme offers a deliciously surprising taste to any given recipe, including soups, a variety of meat and even vegetables. Thyme is also a natural remedy for numerous respiration problems such as coughs and even bronchitis.

Would you ever imagine that our spices and herbs are capable of helping you with common health problems whilst still tasting fabulous?
