    You may help cut down on your salt (sodium) intake by using a salt substitute. To make your own salt substitute, mix the following ingredients together and put them in a shaker:

    • 0.5 tsp (2.5 g) cayenne pepper
    • 0.5 tsp (2.5 g) garlic powder
    • 1 tsp (5 g) each:
      • Basil
      • Onion powder
      • Black pepper
      • Parsley
      • Mace
      • Sage
      • Marjoram
      • Savory
      • Thyme

    Talk to your doctor before trying a salt substitute or lite salt. Most salt substitutes and lite salts are high in potassium. Too much potassium can cause problems.
