i keep an eye on my salt, to avoid pufffiness, though i love me some pickles, anchovies, capers, olives, canned soups, & frozen meals & bacon! sheesh, i'm glad i'm on a diet or i'd go assemble pasta puttanesca right now & i'm not really into cooking today.
oooooooooooo i also love all those things!! there is nothing like a good full sour whole pickle with a nice lean corned beef sammie!! we go to a place called harold's NY deli that make corned beef sammies that 3 people share, they are about a foot to a foot and half high!! always have doggy bags!! but they have a pickle bar with full sour and other types of pickles, pickled green tomatoes, the pickled salad (which i can't for the life of me remember the at the moment) califlower, carrot etc, rye bread, white bread and muffins. everything there is BIG. a slice of cake feeds the 4 of us and i ordered an eclair once and omg it was almost 2 feet long!

and of course i always get an egg cream in a frosty mug. hmmmmmmmmm i think we will eat at harold's before we hit the road on our vacation road trip.

Is there any way to get rid of salt by any substitute which I can adapt very easily?
I have whats Labeled "NU-SALT". The primary component is potassium chloride.

It is a sodium free salt substitute that you should be able to find in the spice area of any major grocery store in the US.

I can't tell the difference between this and regular table salt. Does taste a bit different than sea salt to me though.

Being a salt-a-holic myself, I try to be very conscientious about salt in my cooking. I know that if I think something is salted just right, anyone with salt-related health issues might find it too salty. So I'm cautious about how much I salt food when I'm entertaining. My husband's blood pressure is under control with meds now, and he never was the salt-a-holic that I am. I refuse to cook flavorless food so don't completely eschew salt. But when I do salt, I do far less than I would for my own taste, then put salt cellars on the table.

i also am the same with my cooking and ask someone else to do a lot of tasting if i think the food is flat before adding more salt. but over the years i have cut down on my personal salting also. i tend to choose salty snacks if any over sweet.
