The main thing I can suggest is prepare your lunch the night before. Make salads using extra virgin olive oil and vinegar for the salad dressing. Make up sandwiches. Make a stir fry with lots of veggies and brown rice. I am not one for frozen dinners because of the sodium content. I am not working now but when I was working I made up my lunches the night before. Also if any left overs from supper you can have that for lunch.
I'm a newbie and I'm trying to watch my sodium closely-- my doctor has told me that I'm on the very high end of normal for BP and I should monitor my diet. I know that processed foods are high in sodium but only now that I've joined this site have I realized how high!
I occasionally had Lean Pockets for a quick and easy lunch on busy days. I couldn't believe the amount of sodium in them! I am looking for an alternative, quick substitute on busy days...any thoughts?
Also wondering where people try to cap their sodium intake. I've been following the site's reccomendations for me but wasn't sure if I should limit even further...different health sites seem to have conflicting info!
Thanks so much-- looking forward to hearing from you!
