(Get) Lost Shaker of Salt

I knew the day would come;
we would go our separate ways.
You've been such a big part of my life,
but that was just a phase.

You see, I'm different now.
I'm not the person you once knew.
I've turned my life around--
there won't be room for you.

We've had some great times!
I'm not gonna lie.
But the writing's on the wall--
you could cause me to die.

I dread the day you'll leave me.
I'm afraid I'll get the blues.
Will everything be bland and dull?
Can Ms. Dash REALLY fill your shoes?

In the end it will not matter.
I have already made The Change.
And Sodium, you're on your way out--
soon as I hit 180's range.

Salt is such a sneaky little character! I wish you well in sending it packing, lol.

Take away my candy - my soda, my fats, treats, sweets. But salt?! Oh my. I think not. Not yet. Maybe not ever. I wish you luck...I love salt too much! (and have very low blood pressure - salt may be the only thing keeping my alive, right? right?!)

Cute poem. I've been trying to cut down on salt but with little luck. Been using a little more garlic and onions and that seems to help a little.

Take care

Good luck with the salt banishment!
