Just saw this on another Board.

What do you think?

That's as may be (all things in moderation) but it does affect blood pressure and besides, I've gotten used to low salt...

Me to!

I basically cut salt outt altogether and am an avid Label-Reader.

I saw it on another board and just wondered what everyone thought.

I'm trying to cut out or at least cut way back on the use of salt, but I need things that taste good...LOL. Does anyone have advice on spices to use in the place of salt?

I haven't totally cut out salt but I don't add it to my food either.

Interesting. At home, I barely salt my food. I do eat out a lot, and whilst these aren't fast food places, it's still more salt that my usual.

Here's a good discussion on our sister forum GardenWeb which talks about using herbs to "perk up" low salt or no salt. It's nit a substitute but it does relieve the blandness...

Has anyone found a good recipe for no salt ketchup? I just picked up the Hunt's brand and after trying it, then trying to add a few things to it to make it more palatable, I gave up and threw it in the trash. I have heard that Heinz also makes a no salt version. Anyone tried it/liked it?
