Use salt substitutes
Use salt substitutes to enhance the flavor of foods. Herbs, spices, citrus juices, onion or garlic powders, and salt-free seasoning blends are all good choices.
Eat fresh foods
Aim for a diet rich in fresh foods, such as fruits and vegetables. Opt for dried or fresh fruit instead of salty snacks like pretzels and potato chips.
Limit your use of salt-laden condiments. Salad dressings, sauces, dips, ketchup, mustard, and relish are all high in salt.
Avoid salt when eating out
Avoid dishes that contain soy sauce or monosodium glutamate when dining out.
