I usually omit salt from just about anything I'm making from scratch (except bread, but I rarely make bread). I feel that most natural foods taste fine without added salt. The only thing I add salt to is steak (and I don't eat a lot of steak). I cannot, however, stand most canned goods that are canned "no salt added" or "lower sodium." If I buy canned beans, they get a good rinsing before I use them. I'm okay with no salt added tomatoes (Trader Joe's has a good one). But I really like canned green beans and that is one thing I cannot buy low sodium. Yuck.

I remember my parents buying some salt substitute years ago and remember how horrible it tasted. I'd prefer foods without anything to foods with that stuff on it. I'll look into AlsoSalt. Give it a try. Can't hurt.
