Can we really give up our salt intake?
I just love foods that have taste...
and most of the...
time i usually add a dash of salt to most of my favourite food.....
You don't have to give up salt. Salt is vital to homeostasis and electrolyte production. If you have high blood pressure or cholersterol, you may wish to use sea salt. You can safely use tablesalt, just be modest in application and suppliment taste with Mrs Dash.
Mrs. Dash, what the hell is everyone's fixation for that crap? Go to the spice store and buy fresh spices and you won't even miss salt!
We use sea salt in out home things like mrs dash usually leave some sort of after taste and salt substitutes taste funny but sea salt tastes just like regular table salt with out the hazards of high sodium msg and other things that table salt affects
If you need to cut back on salt, slowly wean yourself. Start by not adding salt to your meal at the table. Then start using less and less in your cooking. Eventually you won't even miss it!
I hate bland foods... instead of salt, you can use spices to flavour your food. But you don't have to give up salt all together, you just have have to moderate your salt intake. To start with, stop dashing salt to your favourite foods. I assume those foods already have salt in them. I hope this helps.
Excessive fear about salt is injurious to the health of the tongue!
Your body needs salt. Sea salt provides a wider variety of salts than common table salt.
If you eat prepared foods it's already overloaded with salt so you don't need extra.
You may be addicted to salt and weaning yourself off by reducing the amount is good for you.
Keep trying other spices to replace the salt taste until you find something you like... but don't get addicted to sugar to replace salt.
A craving for salt may mean you aren't getting enough fluids so make sure you are drinking enough fluids in the form of water, milk, coffee, tea, but avoid soda drinks as they are addicting and not healthy.
Good question, if a doctor says to cut back to that, especially if you are a woman. I am type 0 blood type and our blood type is ok for salt intake. There is a book on how to eat for your blood type, not sure the author but it's really great to say what to eat and what to avoid.

What are some foods you absolutely must sprinkle salt on or they don't taste as good?I have a few odd ones: grilled cheese sandwiches, bread and butter (i.e. the bread you get at restaurants before the meal); and boiled eggs.
