Salt is a vital mineral for the proper workings of the human body, as well as potentially the most delicious thing on earth (second to chocolate). Sadly, when it comes to sodium, like anything else, too much is not a good thing. A diet high in sodium can contribute to high blood pressure, water retention and dehydration. To cut back on salt when making dishes, add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice instead of that second pinch of salt. Lemons are full of vitamin C, an immune boosting anti-oxidant. Lemons also contain nutrients that can help our body to naturally cleanse and detoxify.
