National More Herbs, Less Salt Day
National More Herbs, Less Salt Day comes on August 29 of every year. More Herbs, Less Salt Day helps you to take a simple step to realign your diet, through the use of herbs in home-cooked dishes in place of salt. It doesn’t take much space or effort to grow a variety of fresh herbs, and a little rosemary, thyme, mint or other herbs can do just as enough to enrich a dish as a large dose of salt.

History of National More Herbs, Less Salt Day
The origin or the founder of National More Herbs, Less Salt Day is still unknown. Eating less salt is an excellent idea for everyone despite age or overall health. Most Americans eat more processed foods than they should, which is the #1 culprit of adding additional salt to our diet but reducing salt is obvious when you add more flavor with fresh herbs. If you don’t have an herb garden, the good news is most grocery stores stock fresh herbs in the produce section. This time of year is perfect for fresh basil, cilantro, and parsley, but you can also find fresh rosemary, dill, sage, and other several herbs.
