(HealthDay News) -- Adding flavor to your food doesn't have to involve packing your recipe with salt.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics says these healthy, flavorful offerings won't add a salty load to your meals:

  • Sodium-free spices or herbs.
  • Fresh chopped garlic and onions.
  • Flavored vinegars, including balsamic vinegar.
  • Citrus fruit juices.
