Von: GReat idea, but you will need to adjust. Low salt foods can taste a bit bland, if you don't add other things, or if you just aren't used to. My hubby and I are fairly acclimated to low sodium foods so most restaurant food tastes salty anymore. Another thing I recommend is reading labels. It is amazing how much salt a can of cream soup to cook with adds, or store bought broth/bouillon, or canned tomatoes. I buy no salt added tomatoes and tomato puree which doesn't have salt added normally, and tends to be cheaper than no salt added tomato sauce. I cook with as low sodium ingredients as a I can and then add what I decide. IE you can cook lower sodium breads or even no sodium, but I have decided I like a small amount of sodium. Now if I could just find the right amount of salt for homemade pasta sauce, and make some of my own salad dressings then my lower sodium diet would be better.

That is a good idea. I gave up salt years ago and I do not miss it. There are so many wonderful herbs and spices out there to try.

Hi! Due to health issues

I'm looking to make healthy changes to my cooking by adding more herbs/spices and omiting the salt.
