Question of the day (15th September).

Hi people! πŸ™‚

Do you add salt to your food if it does not necessarily need it?

My answer:

It’s not a rule, and I don’t have to have lots of salt on my food to enjoy it, but yes, sometimes I do it. Both me and my Dad are salty spicy people and we seem to have higher tolerance or something to more salt and more spicy stuff than most people I know.

How about you? πŸ™‚

  1. I’ll sprinkle salt on food that I cook, yes, but for me the major problem is avoiding packaged food, like snack crackers or chips, where they load it on. That’s a much bigger salt-intake issue than the small amount I put on food I cook!! I also like pepper and Old Bay seasoning for anything like chicken, fish, or potatoes.

  2. It really depends. Like, I never used to add salt to pastas while my sister was horrified that I didn’t and said salt absolutely needs to go in the water with macaroni or spaghetti. Then again, I prefer my fries or other baked potatoes with more salt than most.

    1. As a side note, there is this joke going around in the Netherlands in which people ask each other: “Do you want more or fewer spices on your fish?” This was caused by right-wing politician Geert Wilders asking the public: “Do you want more or fewer Moroccans?” implying that they want fewer. He then stood at a fish shop and was asked this question and answered “fewer”. Most people (but not me) want fewer spices on their fish, as the spices are mostly salt.
