You're on a low sodium diet--welcome to the joys of aging. You're discovering the wonderful world of cooking with spices, and cooking healthily with RealAge or Dr. Perricone. But your blood actually needs the iodine in salt. What do you do?

They're green and they look like vegetables, but you don't want to eat that nori nosh. Problem solved!

Not to mention spicy and sparkling.
