Salt certainly adds a lot of flavor to a dish, but too much of it can cause health complications and bloatedness. So how do you cut back on salt without meals tasting as bland as cardboard?
Try adding liberal amounts of lemon and garlic. These are strong flavors that can help mask the lack of salt (garlic is also thought to be good for the heart, so that’s a bonus!). Look for salt-free seasonings, which are far better than salt substitutes. Also experiment with fresh herbs or some spices. Curry powder, for example, has so much flavor you won’t even miss the salt.
