5. Chives
Chives are all about the flavor, which makes them a great salt substitute. Yes, they have some antioxidant properties, but more than anything you can turn to chives for adding a major flavor boost. Similar in taste to leeks or onions, chives are a great addition to soups, grains, potatoes and meats.

6. Black Pepper
Black pepper is a much healthier option than its partner in crime. Before you think about reaching for the salt, grab the pepper. It’s loaded with flavor without the unwanted effects of excessive sodium intake. And you can use it both to season dishes as you cook or to add flavor once your food is ready.
