When my family and I went to the beach last year, we stopped at a Save a Lot and I ended up getting a small ketchup for us to use in the room with our foods (brought some foods to cook so I could control the salt), turned out it was no salt added. I didn't realize it until I tasted it....but you could instantly taste that clean taste of tomato with not much else!

If I'm craving a crunch (which is often) I like no-salt or hint-of-salt chips. Sometimes I'll have celery with cream cheese or ranch dressing. Chocolate has very little sodium!

Explore all the stores you have locally, it can make a difference. I've always bought canned goods at Save A Lot anyhow because of cheaper price, but they also always carry the basics in a no-salt added version.

I'd never heard of or seen no-salt ketchup til reading about it somewhere at Spark (could have been the HBP team), but locally at Walmart they don't have it. I found it last night at one in the next town, which also carries more low-sodium canned beans, and low-sodium Stovetop dressing.

I will have to check and see about Hood's. I don't seem to ever recall seeing it anywhere in our stores. The friendship one though is very bad tasting, even with fruit on top it still tasted funky. I do miss my cottage cheese and fruit snack though!

Thanks Littlewind53

I didn't list the name of the no salt added cottage cheese, because not everyone has the same choices offered to them, just like Publix grocery stores are isolated mostly to the southern portions of the U.S. I will admit, the taste of the no salt added cottage cheese is definitely an aquired one. I can not stand it, but that is just me. I would rather have some greek yogurt, which is fairly low in sodium and rich in protein. Again, the name of the greek yogurt varies by location and store.

Googling is a great way to find what is available on the market and to sometimes they even have links to stores where it is sold at. I highly recommend this as it is a great way to find new products, at regular stores, that are low to no sodium added.

For those who love ketchup, but not the salt, there is a Heinz No Salt ketchup and since Walmart is everywhere...it is sold there!

I was just thinking about my meals last night since my hours changed this week. Normally during a 10 hour work day, I eat breakfast, a snack after workout, go to work, eat another snack, then eat my dinner, and another late snack. With this schedule this week, I've cut out two of my snacks and boy has my stomach growled without those two snacks. emoticon

This late morning's snack is a pack of sliced apples and some low sodium deli turkey and some water.

Who have you encouraged today?

Thank you for the info, I did a google and it took me lowsaltfoods.com and gave me some name of makers I will take to my store to see if they can get for me and all of those others that are concerned about lowering our sodium in take.

The NSA Cottage cheese is called Friendship. I found it at the Publix grocery store chain.

That's very much like my snacking choices. I can't eat nuts, but have found a no salt added cottage cheese that I like to snack on. Now if I could just find the low-sodium turkey...

This is how I normally eat is the three small meals and at least two snacks or sometimes even three snacks a day. It helps to keep your energy levels going, your blood sugar levels even and just makes you feel better.

My favorite snacks include raw veggies and peanut butter, some unsalted or lightly salted nuts, lean turkey meat, swiss cheese (one of the lowest sodium cheeses out there) and low salt crackers, and so on.

Happy Thursday to you!

Do you find yourself needing more energy around 10am & 4pm each day? Maybe you should consider spreading your calories throughout the day with smaller meals AND snacks.

Your challenge today is to eat two healthy snacks. Have one in the morning after your body has used the energy from your breakfast. Have a healthy snack during the late afternoon when your body is starting to get tired, and dinner won't be for a few hours.

Many folks swear by eating three smaller meals and two healthy snacks a day. Give it a try. You just might find out that this works beautifully with your hectic schedule. Plus, if you have diabetes, this is a great way to keep your blood sugars level throughout the day.

Have a great Thursday everyone!
