More Herbs, Less Salt Day takes place on 29th August each year. The aim of More Herbs, Less Salt Day is to promote the use of healthy herbs as seasoning instead of salt.
Late in the month of August is actually a very good time for a day such as More Herbs, Less Salt Day, for the simple reason that this is a time when the harvesting of herbs from the garden is reaching its annual peak. After all, there are few things in this world that are better than being able to garnish your all-time favorite recipes with fresh garden herbs.
More Herbs, Less Salt Day was the brainchild of Wellcat.com, which has actually created and copyrighted a whole range of other special days throughout the yearly calendar as well. Perhaps oddly, Wellcat.com has not given much in the way of information about the day, other than to take note of the fact that herbs are much better for your overall health than is the case with salt, which is certainly true enough.
Of course, perhaps Wellcat.com simply did not see the need to give too much other information about More Herbs, Less Salt Day given that it more or less effectively speaks for itself. All you need to take part in More Herbs, Less Salt Day are some herbs, a fun and tasty recipe, a desire for a healthier diet, and perhaps just a dash of imagination as well.
