Yesterday I made a pot of lentil rice tofu soup that turned out to be very tasty. I cooked the rice and added a can of lentils and half a box of tofu, plus half a jar of low sodium peach salsa and some brown sugar. Somewhat to my surprise, it turned out to be pretty tasty, plus it is vegetarian. I had been trying to understand how to use the tofu I'd bought some time ago, and I liked this recipe. I ate it for lunch and supper yesterday, and finished it for lunch today.
Next time I'll lower the sodium more by cooking my own lentils instead of using canned.

Yes, it was very good, and I could freeze 5 servings in individual containers. Makes serving for 6 - I really liked it. I think next time I might add some garlic to it, not a lot though.

I usually make my own soup. But, I think of it as a winter food. I always associate soup with being cold or having a cold!! Campbell’s chicken noodle Healthy Harvest, is low sodium for canned soup.

Kelly, thanks so much for this site. Very interesting, and not too expensive. We are worth it. I praise God everyday for me to reach 81 and basically in good health.

Have a great day.

Donna, I have heard of the whole Foods, I live in Tampa, FL and going to check it out. I know they opened a new Natural Store close by, and am going to check it out. It is like sugar free food, candies, etc. are all so much higher. I don't understand either.

I have a cassarole in the oven now, and it is smelling so good. It is from Sparks recipes (low sodium) and called Loose Cabbage Rolls. Anxious to try it as it is low in calories, and sodium.

I have done good since Fri. when I started. I even saw a drop on the scale this morning.

Have a great day everyone.
Think low sodium.......

it'll take time. In the mean time, when I find lower sodium items on sale, I tend to stock-up. At a grocery outlet here in WA, I found Amys Organic low sodium black refried beans at a real low price and bought several cans. I'd mix with brown rice and roll it in soft corn tacos for a very low sodium bean and rice tacos

while in Florida we found a store that is called whole foods market . I love this store and wish we had it in our area. they have so many low salt things and other healthy choices to pick . why does it cost more to have it salt free ? it should be less not more .

I've submitted a low-sodium corn chowder recipe. 363 mg per two-cup serving - 182 for a single cup of soup.

I hope you like it! I've got a vegan version in mind that I will try next. But since I'm a single guy, I may cut that recipe amount in half. It will be a while before I make it, though!

(I edited this now that I figured out how to make the link a link.)

Check out Health Valley. They are usually in the organic or health food section of most better supermarkets, and I they also sell direct online. They have about 8 no salt added soups that are about 25 mg per serving and their regular soups are about 380 mg per serving.

I just made some yesterday with leftover beef from stirfry the night before and low sodium beef broth, no-salt-added canned tomatoes and lots of veggies and seasonings. Looking forward to eating some tonite. I know I bought one brand I can't remember of canned soup that had no salt added from the health food store but the regular grocery here just has the "reduced salt" versions.

Any recommendations (or websites) for low sodium soups? Seems that all I find (whether canned or DIY) have around 600mg a serving. My searches online have led to cold fruity "soups," but that's not what I'm looking for. Suggestions?

TIA,
Sherri
