Hi Lori emoticon to the team. I too have Meniere's....I really don't eat much bread, but sure know what you're saying about so much sodium being in a lot of food products.

Wishing you all the best with your healthy and low sodium lifestyle journey! emoticon emoticon emoticon

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 who strengthens me. Phil. 4:13

Hello - I'm Lori, and I'm new to this forum as of today. I was diagnosed with Meniere's last month and I'm discovering that I feel much better if I follow my doctor's orders and cut down to between 1,000 to 1,500 mg daily. I've only been able to do that this past week though, and I am having a tough time not getting discouraged the amount of time it's taking to be able to eat the low sodium way. I am a long-time Weight Watcher's member too, and I like to cook, but at least I could eat out every so often. I never really paid that much attention to how much sodium I was eating and how much salt is in just about Everything! Especially bread and most things you buy packaged from the grocery store. So it's a shock to me and hard to swallow (so to speak). I bought a low sodium cookbook last weekend and I'm going to try making the substitute for soy sauce. We'll see how that one turns out! I'm also going to try making some low sodium bread this weekend in my bread maker.
