    Cooking without salt

    I've turned over my salt for fresh herbs and vegetables for flovering meats and foods and wow was I missing out. My BP is down, I have striations in my triceps and sleep has improved (the better sleep is most likey lower BP).

    Cooking ground turkey with mushrooms, fresh garlic, fresh tomatoes, fresh peppers and zero salt makes a tastey addition to any meal. I still use canned beans but rinse them well under running water and add brown rice and a list fresh onion, garlic, peppers, mushrooms and make large skillet to feed off for days.

    Allot of guys already have simular routines for food/meal preps but many new guys just need a little boost. I hope this helps.

    A good way to cut salt out of the diet quickly is to STOP EATING OUT OF BOXES AND CANS! And be careful when you are looking at "low fat" type food items. Often times, the lack of flavor is masked with salt.

    Re: Cooking without salt

    I've been cooking without salt for years now, I swapped salt for herbs and flavor a while back, herbs add tons of flavor without the salt, I do use salt in some dishes, not gonna lie, but this is my substitute fo salt
    "dried onion powder or garlic powder with dried basil, parsley, thyme, and dill, she says, with a little cayenne " gives your food the extra kick salt gives.

    I stopped years ago also and salt sticks out like a soar thumb when I eat out.... I always have to tell them to hold off on the salt..... Fresh food taste soooo good.

    Re: Cooking without salt

    yeah i stopped using salt long ago the only time i get sodium is through hot sauce, mike i like the the ground turkey idea i usually cook and eat it plain but that sounds better.

    I never salt anything whatsoever. I don't even use any condiments half the time. Just eat it plain.
