If you stop adding salt, you'll eventually get used to the taste and salty foods won't taste good to you anymore. I rarely use salt, but I use a lot of other spices.

Absolutely nothing--I enjoy the taste of foods as they are naturally!

Mrs Dash makes great spice blends if you just have to have spicy salty foods...and they're all low-sodium. Salt is an addiction--break it & your taste buds will eventually recover...and thank you for it! :)

I never add salt to my food, but I do like to cook with marinades, garlic, onions, peppers, etc and those add flavor to the food without too much sodium. I don't think adding salt is a problem, but if you're adding salt to something that already has sodium, like the marinade or a chicken broth, which already have some sodium in them.

I never intentionally add salt to my food.

I flavor my food with onions, green peppers and I am a big fan of lemon juice! I also add pico de gallo (a mexican hot sauce with onions, tomatoes, lemon juice and chile verde) to my food.

It depends on what i am cooking. If I am sauteeing mushrooms, lemon juice is fantastic. If I am making veggies, most likely herbs. If it is protein, most likely spices. IF you give a specific example, I bet you can get more specific ideas.


Every day find a little time for yourself, even if it is only 15 minutes, as long as that time is just for you. Better yet is if that time is fun.

What do you use instead of salt,? I have a problem with fluid retention, (legs and ankles), on my food I use mortons nature's seasons with no MSG, but noticed the first ingredient is still salt. Don't like the taste of "NO SALT", but like my food with flavor, I like using spices, just not HOT!
