I must have been lucky re. salting foods.
A few months after marriage I became pregnant. Since I was gaining too much weight my OB told me to use less salt in cooking. I don't think that it was my regular cooking though but instead processed and packaged foods.
By cutting out these culprits at that time has resulted in my tongue being so sensitive to salty foods that I can't eat many processed foods to this day.

Thank you all for taking the time to respond to my post. I'm grateful for your feedback. I want to especially thank KOKOEK9 for taking the time to put together those spice lists for me. I guess giving up salt is a challenge for all of us who have grown up eating it. Thanks everyone!

The salt habit is hard to break. It may help to reduce that amount you are using, but like sugar, the more you use salt, the more you want. I am finding that I'm using almost none. I am, however using and exploring the use of new and different seasonings.

My biggest challenge is not eating salt. I tried to cook without any salt for a couple of months, but I just don't enjoy my food. I can't seem to get over the hump, so I've been adding a bit of salt to my meals (much less than before!). Have you been able to get used to cooking without salt? If so, do you have any tips for me?
