Sorry for a loss within the family Maewings. My condolences are sent to you.
Some of the items listed here sound good, just remember to watch convenience food items as they are spiced up with herbs and tons of salt. Also, be leary of meats like ham, as they have sodium lurking in them as well.
Here is a favorite of mine, as the carb and protein count are excelelnt. Though I play around with the ingredients to get just the right sodium count, by using fresh grated, low sodium parmesean cheese, rather than the powdered spaghetti style shake stuff and use a lower sodium cream cheese and wilt down and drain some fresh spinach, since salt is used as a preservative in some frozen and definitely canned ones. Plus, for all sodium sensitive individuals on here, remember to rinse your artichokes under running water in a sieve or collander to get even more salt off. Rinsing your veggies under running water for a few minutes can reduce the sodium count by 40%.
Anyhow, here is the link to a great tasting artichoke and spinach dip: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?
I like to dip celery and carrots into it and on occasion maybe a plain no salt added cracker.
The carb and protein stay pretty much the same in this recipe, though you can use light versions of the mayo and cream cheese in order to cut fat some.
