Dr. Oz: Salt Detox Challenge

Dr. Oz had a guest named Chef Andy who eats too much salt and was teaching new chefs to also cook with tons of salt.

Dr. Oz brought a guest onto the show, Dr. Mike Rosen to help Chef Andy improve his health by cutting back on the salt. Salt is extremely dangerous – it poisons kidneys, creates hypertension (increase blood pressure) and contributes towards heart disease. So if you are one of those people who thinks that since you have low blood pressure, you can have as much salt as you want, please reconsider for the sake of your kidneys and heart! Chef Andy now has a new recipe for a salt substitute that he uses. Before his seasoning was kosher salt based, but now he seasons with a combination of onion powder, garlic, cumin, cayenne, italian seasoning, potassium salt substitute. Yum!!!  So start the salt detox challenge, and eliminate salt from your diet for 28 days… you will see how much better you feel!

    Andy doesn’t seem to be willing to release the exact proportions (it is rumored that he may be marketing his seasoning later this year). However, you could start with a TB of each ingredient, and then add more of various ingredients until you get the taste you like. Another salt free seasoning recipe I found online is:
    5 tsp onion powder
    1 TB. garlic powder
    1 TB dry mustard
    1 TB paprika
    1 tsp thyme
    1/2 tsp white pepper
    1/2 tsp celery seed
