I am addicted to tasting salt on food. I can't help it really. I need to know which option is the best alternative (I know neither one really is). I have treied all the alternatives like sea salt, but they don't do it for me. With that being said which option is better health wise? A lot of season salt during cooking or a little bit of salt (regular) after preparation with no season salt during preparation.

My mother never cooked with salt because a member of the family needed a salt free diet due to kidney issues. The only things I always salt when it lands on my plate are chicken and dumplings and mashed potatoes. I love pepper, I have found a ground pepper with lime that I use for seasoning my food. It does have a little salt, so I don't need to add an extra. Jane's Krazy Mixed-up Seasonings Original Sweet Lime Pepper.

We also use Mrs. Dash's Original Table Blend for seasoning hamburger, chicken, pork, rice, homemade soup, potato dishes, etc. We may had a wee bit of salt to our own serving to taste, it cuts down tremendously on the salt. I only buy iodized salt to kill slugs. The sea salt and the kosher salt we use in cooking last a very long time. You know, yoiu might want to try some different sea salts. Depending on where they are collested, the taste varies quite a bit. Some are more smoky, some are sweeter. See if there is a gourmet shop around you that carries a sampler of different types.
