If coconut is safe, there is coconut aminos. Otherwise, I've had good success using umeboshi vinegar. It doesn't have the same depth of flavor (or color - it's purple which can be an odd color in some things), but give that salty "bite" to...

Hugs Helen~. I can certainly understand the cancer concern as my husband is a lung cancer survivor. We also balance 4 kids (1 of whom is autistic with many developmental delays), food allergies, etc. I don't worry overly much re things like junk food,...
