I'll try loking up recipes on the computer for DAsh, didn't realize they gave out recipes. Thanks for the info. I like Trader Joe's but there isn't any here in central Florida that I know of. Have a good week putting around in your wheel chair. Glad you have one, Blessings to you,Barbara t
You all may already know this but I just found it and I can't wait to try some of the recipes in the DASH diet. I haven't even looked at the second book in the series that came out. All the recipes I found there look yummy and have 140mg or less of sodium. And for prepared foods check out the list I saw at Trader Joe's of low sodium. I haven't been in there in months but now I have my wheel chair I intend to make a list (a small one) :-)) Be well - Meri
Wednesday Oh, good grief (OGG) Ií m addicted! Made Buffalo Beans today and I canít leave them alone! I really like the hot sauce but you can adjust to your liking. If you donít like hot sauce at all you can use adding some garlic salt, soy sauce or whatever pleases you. I used the hot sauce this time. Found these when I was looking for low sodium snacks Ė oh my, did I ever found them! Do check out the recipes at Whole Foods Ė but only if you have time. Itís a great resource ! ! They have just the right amount of protein to be a sufficient snack but not too filling. Hereís what you need: 1 tbsp garlic EVOO 1 tsp garlic powder .4 cup Frankís RedHot 1 can of chickpeas Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup. Drain and rinse your can of chickpeas and put them into a bowl and add the EVOO, garlic powder and hot sauce. Toss the mixture to coat evenly. Now I have noticed that bake times have varied throughout all of the recipes Iíve seen. I roasted mine for 30 minutes and found that to be just right. You know theyíre done when they are starting to brown. This usually makes two servings which can easily be separated with Tupperware. Enjoy - Meri
I agree. The best ground turkey I have found is Nature's Place at Food Lion. 94 % lean, 85 mg sodium, 7 fats and 1 saturated fat. The 99% lean is too dry for most recipes. Their chicken breasts have no saturated fat.
I tried the new Chili seasoning packet by Mrs. Dash. It was so good you didn't miss the salt. The only sodium will be from the no salt added tomatoes and reduced sodium beans as well as the turkey or beef that you add. I am ready to try the taco and beef stew packets also.
I found two items that are low in sodium and still taste good. First is a cheese from Ireland made by Kerrygold called aged cheddar. It has 21 mg per oz. The other is Sesmark's Savory Rice Thins, toasted onion and garlic with 0 mgs of sodium. Serving size is 16 crackers.

The best way to keep foods low in sodium is to make them from whole foods. I make my own sauces and use many alternatives such as Mrs. Dash, veggiezest (Dr. Fuhrman, Eat to Live), nutritional yeast instead of cheese.
I'll have check out Trader Joes, we go there very rarely it is some distance from our home. The American Heart Associations Low Sodium cookbook has 3 or 4 pasta sauce recipes all which are pretty simple to make.
I've be searching for a low sodium pasta sauce and it appears to be a few, but whether any of the store near me carry them is another matter. I guess I can also buy them at Amazon. I also downloaded a recipe from Taste of Home. Any suggrestions of other places to look?
