    Many people have said that one of the things that you should do in life is go on a road trip. At the time,I didn't see the big deal about it. I mean what will I gain from going on some road trip? But while on the road trip,I started seeing beautiful places that I have never seen before. As I started viewing the beautiful mountains and hills,I was happy that I went on the road trip that covered 2,709 miles.

Fill your saltshaker with a low or no sodium salt or replace it with herbs and spices. Growing evidence shows that substances in herbs and spices may fight cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions. The taste for salt is partly hard-wired,but mostly learned or acquired. Train your taste buds to be satisfied with less salt. Gradually cut back on salt in favor of lemon, pepper, vinegar,herbs and spices. Over time,you might rediscover the true flavor of food and the supper sizzle that herbs and spices have to offer.
