Von: GReat idea, but you will need to adjust. Low salt foods can taste a bit bland, if you don't add other things, or if you just aren't used to. My hubby and I are fairly acclimated to low sodium foods so most restaurant food tastes salty anymore. Another thing I recommend is reading labels. It is amazing how much salt a can of cream soup to cook with adds, or store bought broth/bouillon, or canned tomatoes. I buy no salt added tomatoes and tomato puree which doesn't have salt added normally, and tends to be cheaper than no salt added tomato sauce. I cook with as low sodium ingredients as a I can and then add what I decide. IE you can cook lower sodium breads or even no sodium, but I have decided I like a small amount of sodium. Now if I could just find the right amount of salt for homemade pasta sauce, and make some of my own salad dressings then my lower sodium diet would be better.
