Salt I never used to use much of, but I read something recently about salting food at the right stage during cooking and how it can really bring out the flavours. So I'm using it when needed now. We do use a lot of soy/fish/oyster sauce though which are packed with salt.

Yep, any chef will tell you this about salt.
DH learnt a tip recently, a dash of oyster sauce in bolognaise, the richness it brings is amazing!

I never add salt to my puree soups and use minimal sugar in my baking. I too like to experiment with sugar subs at the moment and i like stevia baking blend. also i cut down the amount of sugar in recipes by half, i find that they are too sweet most of the time so half of what they recommend is great for me.
