Take Your Time

Rather than try to cut out salt altogether, gradually reduce the salt content of your food to give your palate time to adjust.

Salt Substitute

Reduce salt without losing flavour by mixing:

1 part salt

1 part toasted crushed sesame seeds.

Gradually reduce the salt content over time.

Salt Alternative

Using a mortar and pestle, grind together these ingredients. Store in an airtight container.

3 tablespoons basil

2 tablespoons celery seeds

2 tablespoons sage

2 tablespoons savory

1 tablespoon marjoram

1 tablespoon thyme

1 tablespoon cumin seeds

ground kelp to taste
