Oftentimes we think that less salt equals less flavor. With the right seasonings, however, it’s actually possible to increase flavor without salt. Before adding salt to your meal, try some of these flavor-enhancing, salt substitutes.

 

Vinegar:

Not only can vinegar be a salt substitute, but it provides more flavor and is available in many different varieties. Vinegar also is a key ingredient in oil-free, plant-based salad dressings.

 

Garlic, Pepper, Lemon, or Lime Juice:

Using these flavorings together, or individually, adds significant flavor to a dish and decreases the need for salt. Fresh or dried herbs, like cilantro, basil, thyme, and parsley, among others, are also useful as flavor enhancers.  

 

Kelp Granules:

This sea vegetable brings out the flavor in dishes and is full of B vitamins.  

 

Nutritional Yeast:

Nutritional yeast adds a “cheesy” or nutty flavor to dishes and can offset the need for more salt.

 

If you want something ready made, try Benson’s Table Tasty, which is a popular salt replacer, made from dehydrated lemon peel.

Recently, my daughter received all of her textbooks before heading off to college this fall.  A required class for first year students is Health.  She started reading through the book and was surprised that they said to approach a plant-based diet with ‘caution’ because you had to watch your nutrients very closely.  They also referred to the “importance of combining vegetarian proteins during a meal to get a complete protein.”  The amazing thing is that this book was published in 2015!

"Less than a year ago, at the age of 49, I was well into my second year of suffering from angina, shortness of breath, and fatigue. I used the maximum dose of nitroglycerin daily to help with the chest pain, but it didn’t improve my exercise tolerance and I was extremely limited in my day to day activities. A trip to the grocery store would require most of a day to recover from..."
