5. Replace Salt

Salt is composed of sodium and chloride but sodium is the one that is dangerous to our health. You should always check the labels on products before buying.

Reducing our intake of sodium to no more than 6g of salt per day can reduce the risk of stroke or heart attack by 25%.

Instead of using salt to make food tasty, use other ways to add flavour, such as herbs and spices.

If you are use to salty foods, your taste buds become less sensitive to it and you tend to add more salt in your next meal. Gradually reduce the amount of salt so that your taste buds will adapt and the salt receptors on your tongue will become sensitive again. Replace salt with cinnamon, mustard, horseradish, ginger, peppercorns, star anise, citrus zest, cardamom, nutmeg, chiles, caraway seeds or lemongrass.
