Forget buying packets of seasonings. They're expensive and often full of salt. Save sodium and money by making this easy herb blend. Use it in sauces, soups, stews, on meats... anywhere you want to add Italian flavor without fat or sodium!Submitted by CHEF_MEG

My husband is very salt sensitive and diabetic. Many of the taco seasoning packets found in the store contain sugar and lots of salt. Many also contain a thickening agent (usually corn starch) that just adds calories and is not really necessary. Mix this homemade version up ahead to use instead for healthier Mexican-style food.
About 2 Tbsp. equals 1 regular packet for seasoning power. Use 1 Tbsp. for a milder flavor.
Be sure to read the label on your chili powder. It is a combination of spices. Most do not contain salt or sugar, but some might.
If you like the little chunks of onion or garlic in your seasoning, use dried, minced onion or garlic instead of the granulated or powdered version. You will need about twice as much as the amounts listed and it will change the nutritional information slightly.Submitted by BJMOOMEY

I have been trying to find a low sodium bbq sauce but have been unsuccessful finding any in the local stores, so I decided to create my own. This recipe is my own take on a recipe from recipezarr.com - you could use splenda brown sugar and whatever spices you like (will alter nutritional information). I will continue to play with this recipe, it was very good (sweet with a little tang) and has a lot of potential to be even better.Submitted by GIRL*IN*MOTION
Recently diagnosed with high blood pressure, and came up with a super yummy, flavorful, LOW SODIUM sauce to use on spaghetti, lasagna, or pizzas! There are lots of recipes for sauces on here that seem to have a ton of little ingredients - but this one is simple, healthy, and EASY! Just throw it in the crock pot in the morning!Submitted by KATIEKEISLER
What? Canned tomatoes in a tomato sauce? Yes, that's right. Garden tomatoes are only available for a short time, but crushed canned tomatoes are on shelves year-round and packed with flavor.
