I, too, like the Ezekiel bread, but it's so expensive. Two of our local supermarkets sell store brand low sodium whole wheat bread. I buy it occasionally, but I bake my own most of the time. If you or your mom do not bake, try a bread machine...they are easy. I prefer to use my mixer with the dough hooks, I can't knead by hand very well, I have some arthritis in my hands. I do put some salt in my bread, about a half tsp per loaf, or a little less. You do need some for proper rise etc. My problem with the bread machine is the shape of the bread, it doesn't look like bread baked in a loaf pan, but it tastes fine.
By the way, I also buy the dried beans and cook up the whole bag at once, then freeze what I'm not going to use soon. It's also easy, it just takes time. Goya makes "no salt added" canned beans, they still have sodium, but less. Several companies make "no salt added" tomatoes and tomato sauce. Francisco Rinaldi brand has a low sodium spaghetti sauce.
The salt shaker is usually not the problem, the prepared foods is...read labels. I'd like to find low sodium frozen dinners, but haven't. My 93 year old mom lives with us, and doesn't like seafood...my husband and I eat it about twice a week, so I have to cook something different for her.I do often have leftovers, but I'd like to have the prepared dinner on hand for when I don't have leftovers.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Phil. 4:13
