I'd like to add a clarification about the Kosher salt -- if measured by weight there is the same amount of sodium in Kosher salt as in regular (or sea) salt, but because it's coarser there is less sodium when measured by volume. So, if you use it in cooking and go by taste, you will still be getting the same amount of sodium.

I find it hard to cut back on salt, too -- but I like spicy hot food, and using more pepper, cayenne, tabasco sauce, etc. helps me use less salt.

thank u for all the suggestions i will try them out i do use mrs dash but i think my taste buds need to get use to plainer food and taste. Its not easy making this change and i get tempted at time (i work in a professional kitchen) but i just need to remember to keep pushing forward and not beat myself up when i have moments of weakness right?

I like using a product called Vegeta which is made in Croatia. I find it at some of our grocery stores and specialty stores in our area.

I put Mrs. Dash's Table Blend in two salt shakers. I have Kosher salt in the pantry but I haven't used it since I bought Mrs. Dash. My the way, Kosher salt has half the sodium that regular salt and sea salt has.

Mrs. Dash is a GREAT seasoning to use....I never use salt.

I use salt. I am very careful on how much and then I watch my intake of salt on other things that I eat. You can't take all your salt away. I may be wrong but that is how I do it. Like when using broth, use one with salt and one with out salt. Add your spices and vegies and NO more salt.
Just a thought.

I usually use what you have mentioned but sometimes I use no salt Italian Seasonings. I also make a lentil soup with water, lentils, onions, garlic, green papers, carrots, any other veggies and put non salt Italian Seasonings in it. With all the vegetables and lentils it taste pretty good. I make bean soup that way. I am one who does like a lot of spices and I do not like bland foods.

Hope this helps.
