I prefer garlic or onion powder. We stopped using salt many years ago. I found a product called Mrs. Dash Table Blend that we use as a table spice, works fantastic. Great on popcorn also.
We also stopped adding salt to any cooking a long time ago and it take some creative ways to substitute and get flavor. Emissionguy is right about Mrs. Dash, it is also available in a lot of different varieties, I too like the Table Blend, also I love the one called Southwest Chipolte. It has a little heat but it is so good.
Also, looking at hot sauces is a good way. A few drops of a hot sauce always perks the dish up, and if you use it sparingly, it does not create heat. There are a lot of them my favorites are green mild, Cock Sauce, and Chipolte. These all have a great flavor and you will love them. All very low in calories and sodium.
Tamari or soy are both salty and both add flavor in cooking. I like to add tamari to soups because it adds more flavor than salt alone.
Now I wouldn't say to cook this in every thing, but acidic flavors are actually salt replacements... example lemon juice and apple cider vinegar, you can still use a little salt but add lemon juice to fresh steamed broccoli , the more the better lol and If I want to add flavor to something, like a pasta salad or cabbage, adding vinegar makes it tastier w/o loading it down with salt.
I just started using kosher salt in place of regular salt. I don't have to use nearly as much to get a better flavor.
Mrs. Dash is a great substitute for salt in cooking. As Emissionguy already pointed out, it is wonderful on popcorn.

Why is important to boil noodles in salty water?I've always been told to boil noodles in the "water of the sea" but I don't know why. Is it an old-wives tale or is there some truth to it?
