Experts say to limit your salt to just one teaspoon a day, because too much is bad for blood pressure. So cut back with these tasty substitutes. Garlic kicks up the flavor of pasta, sauteed veggies, and lean meat. Cook sliced cloves and olive oil, or sprinkle garlic powder onto your dish. The juice and zest of citrus fruits adds a tangy twist to salads, sauces, and grilled food. Try lemons, limes, and oranges. Want some heat? Add chili powder to fish and stews. This blend of spices and herbs will fire up the flavor. Vinegar gives sauces and dressings a sour acidic bite. Choose from red or white wine vinegar, sherry vinegar, and others. Ginger adds a warm, spicy, slightly sweet zing to stir fries.
