One of our local grocery stores has a store brand lo sodium bread! Brand names are rather pricey. Swiss cheese is lower in sodium naturally that others. The deli here carries lower sodium turkey, chicken and ham, but you need to ask the exact mgs per 1 oz, because they vary and are not all that low sometimes. Oh, and when buying a chicken or turkey, be sure to read the label, I was floored to see the amount of sodium in some whole birds.
Hain is the brand name of the baking powder that I found that has no sodium.
If you make something without salt that is way too bland, a small amount of sea salt added at the table perks it up. I use a 1/8 tsp measure and use 1/2 of that. It adds 125mg of sodium, and lots of flavor.
I often use left-over baked chicken for sandwiches, rather than buying deli slices. Sometimes I make it into chicken salad, other times I slice it thin and put some cranberry sauce on for condiment.
I put a low sodium barbequed pork recipe on the recipe board, look under "Pork, barbequed, low sodium" by Donnac. It's a crock pot recipe and one of my favorites.
