This week is world salt awareness week so I’m happy to take the chance to share some tasty low salt recipes with you, these will give you healthy eating with low salt in each recipe but still plenty of taste.

I’m sure many of us have been in the position of trying to reduce salt, but not sure how to maintain the flavour in our food. Throughout pregnancies, I always get slightly higher blood pressure and need to reduce my salt to combat this, and of course when cooking for the whole family it’s better to reduce salt for the young children.
