Tip of the Week - True Citrus Substitute
There is a good natural substitute for salt and sugar you can use in drinks or foods. True Lemon, True Lime and True Orange are a few of the choices you can use to sweeten teas, water, meats, fruits and vegetables. They are cold-pressed and crystallized citrus that come in packets, and shakers. You can use them in place of artificial sweeteners that contain aspartame and they taste just as good. If you happen to be on a salt restricted diet you can use this as a salt substitute. It's a healthy alternative that has 0 calories and 0 carbohydrates. They are sold in local grocery stores usually in the baking aisle and on the True Citrus website. There is also a form on the website you can complete to request your store to carry the products if you can't find them at your local store. They have added new products and the company offers free samples from their website. If you haven't tried this healthy product yet and you like citrus fruits this one is worth tasting. I've used the True Lemon, True Orange and True Lime in water, guacamole dips, salsas and in teas. I really like the taste and the price is reasonable. I even bought the shakers so I can add some to my food while cooking. This is one product I'll keep using and keep recommending to others.
