How do we add less salt to our food?
Start with one step at a time and reduce your salt intake gradually. Gradual changes are easier to sustain and remember that you can teach your taste buds to enjoy food with less salt.
If you add salt at the table, change this habit first by not putting the salt shaker on the table. If you added salt during cooking you don’t need to add more at the table.
Try to use less salt when you are cooking. Taste your food during cooking before you add salt, as it may not need it. If you have already added salty spices or a stock cube, you don’t need to add salt as well. Remember that ‘lemon is the new salt’ – it brings out the natural flavour of your food. Instead of adding more salt, rather add a squeeze of lemon juice.
