Me either....I have HBP and it makes it go up even more....besides most things are full of salt so extra isnt really needed. :)

Quoting mrswillie:

I rarely use salt.

Quoting Wish2Be:

Dont use Salt ( or use minimal sea salt )

Try not to fry anything.

Eat more vegitables than meat.

Use salt sparingly, select leaner meats, use fresh fruits and veggies instead of canned

Choosing and cooking fresh vegetables is intimidating at first, but more rewarding than frozen or canned. 

You actually can fill up on veggies and meat (no need to a starch side at every meal.)

Fat is not always bad. A small handful of almonds will hold you far longer than a slice of bread. According to my nutritionist, you completely break down carbs in less than an hour, proteins in three and fats in five (give or take).

We always use fresh vegetables
I always have salad made & stored in an airtight container in the fridge and take it out before dinner.
I use cooking spray, oilive oil and safflower oil and bake rather than fry.
