Do you think of salt when you hear the question, “What’s shaking?” Many of us reach for it, but here’s the truth: most Americans consume more salt than is regularly recommended by nutritionists. Experts at Canyon Ranch, a leading wellness resort, believe that the most nourishing foods– and the best tasting– are both fresh and seasonal. The culinary team recommends splurging on a variety of colors of fruits and vegetables daily. And seasoning foods with an array of herbs and spices is good for the body.
According to the culinary team at Canyon Ranch, “Research that we find very exciting shows that spices contain compounds with astounding benefits for body and brain– yet another reason to spice it up. Excessive sodium intake is associated with high blood pressure and is a risk factor for heart disease, stroke, some cancers and kidney disease.”
