Welcome. It sounds like you're on the right track, making your own bread. I make ours, I do add 1 tsp of salt for 2 loaves (I don't use a bread maker. I do have one for an occasional loaf in the summer, if I don't want to heat up the oven). Trader Joes sells Ezekiel bread, which is very low. It's a hearty bread, which I love. I also buy dry beans and cook up the whole package, then freeze what I'm not using in 1 cup portions. You can find "no sodium added" beans, tomatoes, and spaghetti sauce (Francesco Rinaldi), in the supermarkets now. The lower sodium bacon is not all that low, but I'll have a slice sometimes. I cook most everything from scratch so have no problem staying around 1000mg, but we go out for lunch every Thursday, and that's probably a sky-high day.
Good luck with your new venture. If I can help in any way, send me a message.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Phil. 4:13
