There is a plethora of beautiful tasting herbs: Basil, Bay leaves, Curry, Ginger, Lemon, Mint, Oregano, Pepper, Rosemary & Thyme—the most commonly used and sodium free. I guess the real trick would be to know what food you can sprinkle these delights on. Those who are cooking/preparing the meal themselves can simply 'match & sniff' there way into a flavorful entrée. Sodium is in just about everything that we eat, normally we consume more than we really need and excrete out just as much as we ingest.

75% of our intake of sodium comes from processed foods.

We only need less than 6 grams of salt per day (thats about 1 teaspoon), and only 2.4 grams/2400 milligrams of Sodium per day.

Extreme endurance athletes beware: Hyponatremia (too little sodium in blood) can occur if generous amounts of water are taken with a large amount of sodium loss (sweat), this can cause pain, nausea or worse if the imbalance is not corrected.

Reducing salt intake may be the best and most effective way to treat hypertension in individuals who are salt-sensitive: Chronic Renal Disease, Diabetics, Hypertension, African Americans, and people over 50 yrs.
