There is one take out you can eat...chinese. I have take out from time to time at our local chinese restaurant. I talked with the manager and explained the low sodium issue, she understood as she has to watch her blood pressure. She tells the cooks not to use MSG and go light on the sauce or just stir fry everything and put the sauce on the side.
As for chain restaurants, P.F. Changs and their sister store Pei Wei, will alter the way they make their food. I ask for brown rice only, they do not use MSG and tell them to add no salt whatsoever to the meal and go light on the sauce.
I am super sodium sensitive, meaning if I go over just a little bit (anything over 600 mg a sitting), I get dizzy and nauseated as a result and I have been able to eat this kind of take out without issue.
As for home and not feeling like cooking. I like to have some marinated salmon on hand, from Costco, very tasty and sodium is within range. I do a quick defrost on it, cook it in the toaster oven, on the convection cycle (so it cooks faster), and nuke some veggies and maybe a potato. Within about 30 minutes or less, I have food.
