I find you can leave out the added salt in virtually any recipe and it comes out fine. Most older recipes use way more salt then is now recommended for a healthy diet.

Start small and change a little at a time. Try lemon juice in meats and vegetables. Mrs. Dash is helpful as well as a new version of frying french fries. Take frozen french fries no seasoning and sprinkle with a package of artificial sweetener. Then deep fry as usual. You will not even miss any condiments. The other thing to try eventually is adding different spices to your menu. Change the flavor of things so you do not miss the salt. Remember canned or package goods contain high amounts of sodium. Good Luck and enjoy the new adventure.

If you want to reduce sodium in baked goods .... AND I do use a bit more of them than regular powder and soda.

I just mixed up some of my homemade spice mixes.

You can make your own taco seasoning, all purpose mixes and cajun (spicy) mixes. This adds flavor & you won't notice the missing salt. I have several if you're interested. Also, a lot of products these days come in lower sodium varieties.

Cooking low-sodium is far easier than you expect. Baking is different.Choose any cooking recipe you like, omit salt, increase herbs and spices - onion powder helps a lot if you add a small amount. My salt-loving husband doesn't miss it if I top off a serving of cooked food with a tiny pinch of salt just before I put it in front of him. I think he gets that taste on his tongue and it lingers through the rest of his salt-free meal. That may lower your family's intake enough if you don't eat a lot of baked goods. If you want to eat a lot of baked goods, use the sodium-free baking powder and baking soda.
