Back in Decembersee here, I wrote a recap of the Doctor Oz program where Chef Andy, a true saltoholic like me was challenged to go for twenty-eight days without adding salt to his diet. In January, I reported on the findings here. Doctor Oz demonstrated just how much salt Andy was eating on a daily basis. The results were astounding, but after the month was over, Andy had lost thirty pounds and no longer craved salt.
This week, the program was replayed and caused a number of questions again to the original article that I wrote. On the program, Doctor Oz said on both the original show and also on the replay that the ingredients for Chef Andy’s salt substitute recipe would be given on his website. On the program it was displayed very quickly just what the ingredients were and also some were mentioned but just briefly.
The ingredients listed on the program were in large bowls, small bowls and smaller bowls. I would assume; and only assume, that the larger bowls would be for three to one, the smaller bowls two to one and the smallest ones a one to one measurement. The ingredients in the larger bowls were: potassium salt substitute, onion powder and garlic powder. The smaller bowls contained: Italian seasoning, black pepper, and cumin and the smallest bowls contained white pepper and cayenne pepper. (Please note: this is my total assumption as to the amounts and in no way is the assurance of the exact measurements of Andy’s recipe, so use your own discretion if you do make this. I got this because I used my DVR to tape the program and ran it over and over. The ingredients were labeled but not clearly enough to see quick enough to get them all but being a Featured Television Contributor is important to me so I have to utilize every resource to make sure the proper information is given.)
On the website that they mentioned and stated that the recipe would be offered contains a disclaimer. This disclaimer states: ZoCo Productions was unable to obtain the rights to post the recipe for Andy’s salt-free seasoning. Below are some additional suggested spices that are low-sodium salt alternatives.
• Garlic Powder
• Fresh Ground Black Pepper
• Soy Sauce
• Onion Powder
• Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
• Lime Juice
• Fresh Roasted Garlic
• Unsalted Ground Sunflower Seeds or Sesame Seeds
• Mustard or Pickle Juice
On the Doctor Oz website, Chef Andy has given some great recipes without salt. No recipe contains his special salt substitute mixture, which I have been led to believe that he intends to market himself.
See those recipes here.
