Krazy Salt and Atkins

Yesterday I was on a mission.  After going to 6 different thrift stores, I found the 1972 edition of Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution (actually a reprint from 1990 but NOT updated).  I have been so curious exactly what the differences are between the original way of eating to what is being taught now.  So far, the difference is night and day.  I will probably do a post comparing and contrasting the two after I finish reading the 1972 version.

Well, I was flipping through the recipes in the back of the book and one ingredient smacked me in the head: Krazy Mixed-Up Salt.  I have never heard of this and looking online, I still really don’t know what it is.  From what I can gather, it’s basically Seasoned Salt with more seasonings.  Since I have never heard of Krazy Salt before I can’t judge whether this is a good substitute but it sounds awfully good to me!
