For me, using fresh herbs and spices help add a distinct flavor to foods, and I'm anticipating the flavor as I see the starts for my herb garden push through the dirt. Mrs. Dash has a variety of salt free spice mixtures that add decent flavor too. And ground herbs and spices are good too, just not as good as the fresh.
Experimentation, trial and error with recipe using lower sodium ingredients when cooking. I made a rice and bean dinner with lower sodium ingredients and it came out fairly good. Have some thoughts for the next time I make it.
Avoid processed and packaged foods - look at the labels. "Healthy Choice" brands are not healthy, at least in terms of sodium content. Best to make from your own recipes. If you don't have the time during the week, make a big batch on the weekend. My rice and beans concoction made enough for lunches this week and for freezing for later.
It can be a fun and rewarding adventure.
