Thanks. I'm glad you feel the same way. There are lots of things we can do to get healthier. I roasted a chicken recently, and the combination of herbs and spices I used was out of this world; and wouldn't you know, I don't remember 'how much of what' I added to get there?! All I know is that I use a lot of rosemary, sage, garlic and garlic powder, thyme, parsley and turmeric.

I wish it did say that instead; i've been reading about washing them to remove the salt and did that last week

I don't add salt to anything either. I also don't use regular iodized salt or table salt. I like sea salt, pink himalayan salt, or kosher salt. Then I only salt if absolutely necessary.

I agree. I always rinse the beans before I add them to anything. I don't like the "canned" taste or the added salt.

I see this comment too often "If you use canned beans, the sodium levels will be higher so omit the salt." Could this be replaced with "If using canned beans, DRAIN AND RINSE thoroughly to reduce high sodium content - and omit added salt in recipe, too."?

Unless absolutely necessary to ensure salt is required to make a recipe work correctly, I do not add salt to anything. I've gotten spectacular results with herbs and spices - and Mrs. Dash!

My kids grew up without a salt shaker on the table! Bon Apetit!
