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.

Hi,

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.

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!
