Try the below alternatives when it comes to reducing your salt intake.
Use a dash of olive oil instead of salt when boiling vegetables, pasta and rice.
Citrus fruits such as lemons and limes can add a zesty kick to fish, chicken and pork. Use them as a marinade with olive oil and garlic or simply squeeze the juices over your meal.
Make your own sauces, stocks and dressings where you can. Freshly squeezed lemon juice, and a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar can make a tasty low salt salad dressing.
Roast and bake. Roasting vegetables like pumpkins, zucchinis, and carrots brings out the natural, almost sweet flavours of the vegetables – great for making your own salt free soups and stocks!
Throw away the chicken stock and make your own with a left over roast chicken carcass.
Heat things up with Chilli! Add a kick to your staple dishes likes chili and eggs, or chilli on steak.
