One of the extraordinary talents of our chefs at the Pritikin Longevity Center is taking food that is normally packed with blood-pressure-raising salt, like soups, and replacing that salt with ingredients like fresh herbs and other seasonings, like porcini powder, that are far more interesting - and tastier - than salt. This Cream of Mushroom and Crab Soup is a superb example.
