Since I can't use salt, I carmellize onions to get a sweet flavor to my dinners. Just get a little fluid in the pan, I use juice from canned mushrooms. Then turn it up to 8 on the cooker, get it sizzling, and put the diced onions in, and let it go. When the onions start to brown, turn down the heat, and add any meat or other veggies, and when you eat, you will taste a sugary flavor. That's the natural sugar in the onions being released!
I tried Mrs. Dash, and many othe salt substitutes. they suck. This adds flavor, while still being healthy.

Try homeade bean paste on white corn tortillas! They're healthy and nutritious. You can add your own veggies (like peppers) and spices (like cayanne)! Just fill up a pan (half way or so, depending on serving of beans) and add the beans. cook for 4 hours, until really soft and mushy. and then mash until you get a paste. You can buy white corn tortillas already prepared.
To add flavor, consider adding bacon bits (or bacon alternatives), salsa, or even onion.
