The Crazy Suburban Mom: Banging and Sprinkling

Banging and Sprinkling

About a month ago Mom Central asked if I wanted to be part of a Mrs. Dash Blog Tour and before you stop reading because you don't rock the salt-free thing, STOP as in...

Even if you don't have to deal with sodium (or think you don't have to because your too young - Ha! And I'll tell you something about that in a sec ) Mrs. Dash is just more economical.  So, read on.

Ever looked at the ingredients on spice blends?  Try it on your next shopping trip or check  your pantry.  Pick up a random blend and look at the first ingredient - It's probably salt which is (likely) the cheapest ingredient in the blend.

 Here's a few of Mrs.  Dash's  salt free blends... That  picture is clickable and it will whisk you away on a fluffy pink cloud of twinkling internet magic to the rest of them.

But back to economical - The cost of buying  Mrs. Dash vs. another blend is comparable bottle for bottle -  lower in a lot of cases and frankly if you want to add salt,  just add it.  But paying for salt as the first ingredient by weight is - well, I was going to say something pejorative but I'll leave it at frivolously unthrifty. 

And if you think watching your sodium and hypertension is for people that sit around playing pinochle at a home;  I've been on blood pressure medicine since my early twenties; and it was high-normal in my teens. No reason was ever found; it's essential hypertension  and has stayed remarkable stable at, up.  Well, not up exactly more like controlled on medication.

That said, I don't live sodium free as much as sodium-careful.  It's products like Mrs. Dash that allow me to regulate.  Yes, I add salt to it but I decide how much.  Using Mrs. Dash is as easy as picking a Blend and sprinkling.  Personally I've been loving this:

Garlic & Herb and yes, salt and pepper...

Sprinkled on a boneless, skinless chicken breast (that has been banged out flat) and quickly pan fried in a hot non-stick pan with a touch of olive oil.   

I'll be doing a few more of these over the next year but don't expect anything harder then banging and sprinkling - incorporating Mrs. Dash  into your recipes is just easy, man. 

 “I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Mrs. Dash and received a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.”

I'm with Lynette, I love the tomato garlic and basil. It is great on pasta, and add a little to garlic bread for a really great side with Italian foods.

so I bought the basil tomato one for spaghetti and it was so amazing, it wasn't until later that I realized it was salt free. Pretty rad that it tasted that good and wasn't full of garbage
