Probably for the best in any case, or at least can't hurt. But if you're used to salt food tastes bland without it. I'm sure after a while you'd get used to it, though.

Actually, I've surprised myself at how quickly I've adapted. Take pretzels, for example. As counterintuitive as it may seem, pretzels without salt on top aren't that bad. The variety my dad is able to buy is really quite good. The variety I can get in my supermarket isn't that great, not as good as the pretzel's Dad gets, but not that bad, either.

Morton's Salt Substitute isn't that bad, either. As good as actual salt? No, but I'm not feeling in any way deprived, nor am I even missing the real thing.

And low-sodium ketchup on scrambled eggs is just as good as salt and pepper.

I once stayed with some friends where the husband was a truly great cook. Only problem: he either didn't salt the food at all or just lightly. They didn't keep S&P shakers on the table, and it seemed rude to ask back then (nowadays when that happens, I just go ahead and ask).

I don't worry about sodium, and I'm a saltaholic and a soysauceaholic. My blood pressure has stayed good so far ...

With the strong history of hypertension in my family, I need to.

Keep us posted on your cleaning accomplishments. They're very inspirational.

My house is on the market right now so I have to keep it pretty meticulously clean at all times. I kind of like it!

I did hire a maid to do the initial deep cleaning, but I can probably handle it from here. It would actually be really easy if I lived alone rather than with a sloppy son. (I wasn't really a neatnik either at his age.) Who knew tidiness can be relatively easy? (She says, knowing she has a big basket tucked away full of New Yorkers, some dating back into early 2018.)
