There are 3 things that affect taste - salt, sugar, fat. If you cut down any of those you have to lift other(s) to keep food tasty

if you need to buy a Budae Jigae meal kit then you also are overpaying. Doing it wrong all day long.

Budae Jjigae is delicious, but healthy it ain't.

It's called "flavour" - and yes, there is a g'damn "u" in that word!

I don't eat healthy, but somehow at 70 yo my blood work would be the envy of a 25 yo marathon runner. If my sodium and cholesterol levels were any lower, it would be cause for concern.  I'll go with genetics.

Back to basics in physiology. Fat cells take in fat when insulin is present. Not sodium and saturated fat. Blaming the sodium content of a frickin French sponge cake loaded with sugar is like saying gas prices are high because tires are round!

I checked the contents of a can of Campbell's soup the other day. 300 calories. 1700mg of sodium. Literally almost your daily intake. Yes, I know, it's Campbells, but sometimes I'm just too lazy to make my own. Thinking twice about that now.

I have some kind of sensitivity to salt. If I eat something with a lot of salt in it, I'll feel like crap for the rest of the day. That's why I cook for myself. I never add salt to anything. I don't care  if the food doesn't taste good. I just don't want any damn salt.
