Tasting the Salt — Arggggggggggg

I really try to use as little salt as possible, most of the time that is none at all.

Being extra careful in Chinese and Thai restaurants is second nature to me now.  In fact,
I had too much soy sauce in sushi at Christmas and I almost passed out……. but now that I think back, maybe it was that hot chili sauce I put on my rice.

It was so bad I had to go outside, and it was only 35 degrees, and lay my cheek down
on the cold sidewalk so I wouldn’t faint.

This is just coming up again because I sort of overdid it on the fresh artichokes, and, of course, I didn’t want to eat mayonnaise or butter, so I just dusted them with salt and pepper and fresh lemon juice, and they were delicious….. but now I can taste the salt!

I can almost feel my cells contracting and shrinking away from the salt.  I won’t make that mistake again.  I’m going out tomorrow to buy some SPIKE!

Salt is really terrible for you.  It thickens your blood and increases your blood pressure, too.  It makes you retain water.  And you only need 500 mg per day instead of the 3000 to 5000 mg most people get.

So check how much salt you’re getting.  It’s probably a little too much.
