I try to buy thin whole grain bread, but even then I use one slice.

Love sourdough too.. will have to check the sodium on instore ones.

I am brand new to the team and to sodium tracking. Made something tonight that even hubby loved.. I basically used just a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes with the basil, garlic and oregano in it. Added froz onion pepper mix and boiled it to reduce. In another pan I cooked 1/2 lb of ground turkey and crumbled then drained it.. adding it to the tomato sauce. I partially cooked thin whole grain spaghetti. Layered it in a casserole - spaghetti, then sauce and sprinkled with parmesan. Kept it in a 350 oven for 20 minutes.

Love sourdough bread. That sounds like a decent number. With bread, I usually use a 1/2 serving, such as making a 1/2 sandwich for work, usually with a lower sodium peanut butter and jelly.

Since I'm new to tracking sodium, I'm not sure what would be considered a low sodium recipe. What do you consider low sodium per slice for bread? I bake all mine, and the sourdoughs have less salt added than to regular, but I'm not sure if it's low enough for, say, someone who is restricting sodium a great deal.

Just looked at the low sodium bread thread. My sourdoughs are between 125 to 145 depending on the recipe, so a little higher than what you can get in the store. They taste better, though, without all those additives and preservatives.

It gets difficult sometimes to watch the sodium levels during the holiday season (I know it is for me anyway).

While we don't want to deprive ourselves of enjoying some of our favorite holiday dishes, but there may be some lower sodium options or low sodium versions.

If you have a favorite holiday recipe that is a lower sodium option that you are willing to share, use this thread to share it, or run it through the recipe builder on Sparkrecipes recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calcu
la
tor.asp
and link it here.

I have some I am experimenting with, and if they work out I'll post these.

Happy (Low Sodium) Holidays!
