Hi Lonna. Welcome to the team. Glad that you found us.
It is crazy the way manufactures put salt into everything. For those of us who desperately need to lower our salt intake, it is never ending. You have to read labels on everything. I spent 10 minutes yesterday just reading labels on the mayo to find the lowest sodium. Of course, it has the most fat and calories, but the lowest calories was just way too much sodium for me.... (I have to keep my sodium down to about 1000 mg a day or boy do my feet ever swell up.) So just keep remembering WHY you are doing it -- FOR YOUR HEALTH.
By the way, what is a nephrologist? I have never heard the term before.
Have you had a chance to check out SparkRecipes.com?
there are some very good recipes there. Some are very high in sodium but can be tweaked to reduce that without too much effort.
We also have a forum near the bottom of the team page where members have posted some recipes. And there is a thread under the general discussion forum about adding flavour. Check them out.
If you ever have any questions, please don't hesitate to post. We are all here to support and encourage each other.
I wish you much success on your journey.
