The doctor has told you to limit the salt in your diet, but everything tastes so bland without it, you hate to give it up. Salt has been linked to high blood pressure, stroke and oedema.

  • Do not add salt while cooking.
  • Remove the salt shaker from the table.
  • Use low sodium soy, barbecue sauce and other salty condiments.
  • Avoid foods prepared with salt brine, such as pickles and olives.
  • Limit foods such as smoked fish, kippered herring.
  • Try a salt substitute.
  • Give food more taste by adding herbs and other condiments such as mustard.
