Rick u are right, so many of the low sodium soups are tasteless.
I like to eat thinks that a quick and easy to throw together but I found that even low sodium foods were putting me over.
I got the Mrs Dash, southwest chipotle seasoning.
I cook up some extra lean beef or ground turkey and put in enough Mrs Dash to make it spicy.
I also started cooking dry beans. I cook the entire package and split it up in ziploc bags. I put 1 1/2 c cooked beans in each ziploc and that equals a can of beans.
I'll but some beans, ground beef, grilled onion and bell pepper, mushrooms and sometimes I will put it in a tortilla (if I can find a tortilla lower in sodium) Corn tortillas are lower in sodium and they are good with this.
all packaged foods do put us way over. When I first started tracking my sodium I thought I would never get it down but now I notice I have to add some sodium things. I will usually choose salad dressing as my sodium thing.
I will post a typical day of what I eat tomorrow on my blog.
I will be honest. I had to change my frame of mind and my overall goal changed when I was told I had HBP. Getting my BP down was far more important then salt.
