since my husband find his blood pressure is really high, i start cooking without salt. only put a little chesse or low sodium soy sauce to make the food taste. for vegetables, we only eat steam vegetables or salad with really light dressing (olive oil + vinegar + pepper) for meat, usually roast with spice and olive oil. only for some asian dishes, we use a little bit low sodium soy sauce or salted meat. my husband makes homemade pizza, we skip salt for dough, and buy the lowest sodium cheese we can find around. the first month for low sodium food, it was hard. but after couple months, we start eating lighter and lighter. did you guys ever tried low sodium food or cook without salt before, if not , do you think you might want to try sometimes later? if yes, how do you like it?

I also have to really watch my salt intake. Mrs. Dash makes a whole line of really good salt free spices you can use to dress up your recipes. I like the one called table blend the best. I have found that I actually prefer less salt in my food now that I am used to eating less salt. I hope your husband can find other herbs and spices that will taste good to him and allow him to enjoy his food without the dangers of salt.

I like no salt for myself. But, It cannot be prevented when you are in outdoor restaurants, food shops. Salt causes many illnesses in the body. The urinary and gall bladder are severely common infected that increase blood pressure, cardiovascular problems and many more complications awaits. You have a good diet control for no salt foods. That is the best prevention for the propagation of illness.
