I mapped out the buffet table at my daughter's. I'll be going heavy on the vegetables and light on the turkey...and no stuffing or gravy for me.

I'm not cooking, so have no idea what is in the food we'll eat. I'll deal with the consequences for several days afterward. I'll TRY to limit my portions.

I am cooking Thanksgiving dinner for a few family members. So I can control how little salt goes into the food.....then each person can add what they want to after it's on their plate. emoticon emoticon emoticon

DW?
We have already had our Thanksgiving here in Canada. I go to my sis and her family seem to feel that food does not taste right unless it is laden with sale. I just have to live with it and go back to low/so the next day.

I have literally stood there while my niece adds salt to some of the things she makes, asked her not to put salt, that I was not supposed to eat salt and she shrugged her shoulders and said the food doesn't taste good without salt and that a little bit won't hurt. She is not willing to even entertain the notion that higher sodium could have consequences for me. How can I argue wit her, she just won't listen.

Me - I don't eat turkey, but have to cook it since we're hosting the dinner and DW doesn't know how to cook it.

Making a pasta/cheese dish that will be higher in sodium than I'd like, but will be my main dish. Fresh green salad on the side. Whole Foods has no salt added kettle chips and blue tortilla chips and I'll likely have those on hand, as well as a vegetable and fruit tray. Gin/tonic is also 0 sodium.

Other meals planning near 0 sodium meals, so I hope to at least be below the 2300 max if not my target 1500.

Every life should have 9 cats.
