Spices are wonderful!

There was some article I read somewhere (so helpful) about how using seasoning can decrease your use of sugar and salt. It might have been on ivillage but now I can't find it.

Anyway, it addressed how cinnamon and other such spices can make food seem sweeter, and garlic and such can replace salt. Salt can also replace fat, in my experience, though it's not quite good for you.

One thing I really like is to put a little bit of chicken boullion on my rice or noodles instead of butter. It adds sodium, but not much (if any) more than butter, and it's yummy.

Also good on rice is Zatarain's creole seasoning.
