I couldn't believe how bland everything tasted without salt. At first, it was really hard but luckily I'd already thrown the salt away so I couldn't cheat. All my favourite ready meals were full of salt too so I had to start cooking from scratch and making my own sandwiches to take to work. I was horrified by how much salt there is in many shop bought sandwiches. You have a look at the packaging and see for yourself, it's awful.
All the extra shopping and planning was a hassle but the advantage is that I've saved loads of money! I've also discovered the amazing flavours of different curry powders, ginger, chillies and garlic. Now, after six weeks, I feel much healthier and can honestly say I don't miss the salt at all.
