I don't track salt since my blood pressure is so low.
I have the opposite problem... since I don't cook with it, and I sweat copious amounts when I work out, I've gotten myself into a compromised sodium position where I've gotten leg cramps from the lack of it.
I use sea salt and black salt.
Eat salt cured olives.
Kimchi which is made with brine.
Miso paste, tamari and soy sauce, too.
Gluten free pretzels on occasion.
As for iodine I drink a lot of milk, and get it that way.
I also eat sea weed snacks whenever I eat goitrogens (kale, cabbage stuff in the crucifer family), which means I have one almost every day!
You can balance your sodium with potassium rich foods.
If you have high blood pressure beets and hibicus tea are two things to try.
Table salt from the Grocer's comes in iodized salt and plain. The US government started adding iodine to salt to eliminate goiter in the central states which were too far from the sea for their soils to contain iodine.
One of the more distressing things about commercial salt is that it contains additives that keep it from caking that aren't exactly healthy.
