We so often rely on salt to flavour our food, more often due to habit but why not try using fresh herbs and spices instead?  As well as pimping up your otherwise bland meal with delicious fragrant herbs and spices, some of these are also said to have wonderful healing properties.

Cumin is said to prevent cancer whilst nutmeg lowers blood pressure, turmeric helps inflammation and cinnamon helps fight type 2 diabetes.  Cloves are said to help arthritis, garlic reduces cholesterol, basil combats colds, rosemary can improve memory and thyme eases coughs.  Ginger, my favourite, helps tremendously with nausea, especially in pregnant women.

So ditch the salt and reach for these herbs and spices to flavour your food.
