Hi Della, this is out of my bread machine book. I use a machine in the summer, so I don't heat up the house.

100% WHOLE WHEAT BREAD (for 1 1/2 lb loaf)


1 Cup+2 Tbsp Water, 80 degrees
1 Tbsp Molasses
1 Tbsp Honey
3 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1-2 Tbsp Gluten (optional, but I use it to make the bread rise better)
1 1/2 Tbsp Dry Milk
2 Tbsp Butter or Margarine
2 tsp Active dry yeast
or
1 1/.2 tsp Bread Machine/Fast Rise Yeast

Bread select setting should be at Whole Wheat or Whole Wheat Rapid

1) Add liquid ingredients to pan
2) Add dry ingred., except yeast. Tap pan to settle ingred., then level ingred., pushing some of the mixture to the corners. Place butter into corners of pan.
3) Make a well in the center of dry ingred.; add yeast. Lock pan into bread machine.
4) Program for recommended Bread Select Setting and desired Bread Color. Program timer if being used. Start bread maker. When done, turn off and remove bread from pan. Cool on rack before slicing.

If you want Half Whole Wheat you use these ingred. and follow the same instructions.

1 Cup + 1 Tbsp water, 80 degrees F.
1 Tbsp Honey
1 1/2 Cups Bread Flour
1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 Tbsp Brown Sugar, packed
1 1/2 Tbsp Dry Milk
2 Tbsp Butter or margarine
2 tsp Active Dry Yeast
or
1 1/2 tsp Bread Machine/Fast Rise Yeast

Total Carb. 27g

Fiber 4g in 100%, 2.2g in 1/2 W.W.

Hi Donna thank you for all your information. Is there any way you could send me your recipe for the bread? I would like to try and make some. Would it work in a bread machine? I was given a used one with no recipes and would like to try it out.
Thanks
Della

Hi, You'll find a wealth of information here, it just takes time to find it all.
The recipes on Spark have a phrase under the nutrition count that says something like 'additional information', click on that and you'll get it all, including the sodium.
I stick to around 1200mg of sodium daily and it really isn't hard now. I rarely use canned food, and even some frozen veggies have too much sodium. Fresh is best. One exception to canned, tomatoe products- I find 'no sodium added' easily, yesterday I found the store brand crushed tomatoes with a 'NAS' label, 20mg per serving. Cento brand is also low in some of their products. Francisco Rinaldi spaghetti sauce has a NAS type. You just have to keep reading labels till you find what your store sells. Hood cottage have an NAS type, I love cottage cheese so was glad to find that. I called my local supermarkets and ask them to stock it, since they all carry Hood brand,and yesterday I found one did that.
Swiss cheese has less sodium that other types of cheese, fresh mozzarella has less sodium than the slices or shredded. The deli carries lower sodium cheese and turkey . Be careful, cause 'lower sodium' doesn't necessarily mean 'low', read the label.
I buy whole chickens and use the bones, wings etc.to make stock after roasting them. I freeze what I'm not using.
Avoid soy sauce. There are low sod. types, not too low though.
Processed foods are essentially tabu. Hot dogs and lunch meat awful.
You can get low sodium and no sodium baking powder and bakink soda in health food stores.
I bake my own whole wheat bread and don't use salt at all. I found gluten in the supermarket and add that to make the whole wheat rise better.
I hope these tips help. It seems a daunting task, but you quickly learn to handle it, and it's really not that difficult. Eating out is the toughest part, you never know what they put in the food, but you can be sure it's more salty that is good for you.
Oh, I also found bread crumbs called 'Panko' that are low sodium.
Donna
PS Have you found the "my nutrition' page on spark? You can put in what you eat and it spits out all the nutritional info you want. There's a way to get exactly what you want on it. I deleted all the suggested food they put there for a diet, and I put in my stuff.

Hi just found this team and hope to get a lot of help here--to meet new friends--and to maybe help others out here. I had congestive heart failure 2 1/2 years ago. I had a value replacement and one by pass. I lost a lot of weight during my recovery and then once I started back to work and picked up a second job to help get bills paid as I did not have insurance at the time, the weight came back on. I just saw a new Dr today and he wants me to cut my sodium intake to 900-1200 a day. He said this was very important. My other Dr said just to cut back. He said to keep track of the sodium and then the calories and the rest would fall into place. I go back in a month and he wants to see a difference and he wants me to come up with an exercise plan that I can handle. I see a lot of recipes but most of them do not have the sodium count. Is there a place on here to find low sodium recipes? I need to lose at least 80 pounds and then he said we would work on the next 60. Soooooooooo please any help or suggestions you might have will be gladly excepted.
Now about me--I am divorced -- I am 57 with three daughters--The youngest is 20 then 21 then 23. I work as a title EA during the school year and I work 32 hrs a week as an over night people greeter at wal-mart.
Ok so here is another start and I hope this time I will figure things out and hit my goals. Goal for the next month-- keep sodium under 1200 a day and to lose 10 pounds.
