I only use a salt substitute occasionally as I'm so used to the taste of "naked" food.

Sounds good. I'll keep an eye out for it. If it's at a dollar store it looks like the price is right...

I haven't cared much for any of the salt substitutes so far but I found a "salt substitute" at the Dollar Store that is very good. I love it on popcorn popped in a paper bag. It's Supreme Tradition Salt Free Seasoning.. has corn meal, oat bran, onion, spices, garlic, carrots, orange peel, tomato, parsley, citric acid and natural lemon oil as its ingredients.

Vinegar tastes salty but isn't, look for ways to use it. I make salad dressing by using a store bought dressing, but put about 1 inch of a rasberry dressing in a jar and 6 inches of balsamic vinegar. I like it. Most store bought dressings are loaded with sodium.

The others advice is good. You also might try "Salt Sense" It's real salt but 33% less sodium ( how they do it I don't know). You can get it at Winn Dixie and at Walmart. They also have a seasoning salt that has 25% less sodium that's put out by Lawry's. I use both and you can't tell the difference taste wise.

Go to recipes.sparkpeople.com/home.asp and enter "Low sodium" in the search box and you'll get a lot of great recipe ideas.

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.

I have finally decided to try to kick, or significantly reduce my salt habit, however, some of my meds forbid the use of salt substitutes. Since I'm a new joiner to this team, I'm asking for some suggestions! Thanks!
