SHARING WHAT I CAN ABOUT LOW SODIUM LIVING

SHARING WHAT I CAN ABOUT LOW SODIUM LIVING
Hi and welcome, I was restricted to 1400mg of sodium more than a year ago and know how hard it is to get started eating the way your doctor prescribes. Lists of low sodium foods were hard to find and consisted mostly of generalities –but - they are a good start. Just enter “ low sodium food list” into your search engine and you will find lots of information
I like to cook so went almost exclusively for low sodium recipes and there are some really good web sites. I finally wanted to know the sodium mgs in foods in the grocery store and didn't feel like wandering around reading labels to discover salt content. So - turned to the internet and I found a little book on line - Amazon perhaps - LOW SODIUM FOODS by Bobbie Mostyn. . . . name the food and nutrients are listed.
The most helpful thing I have discovered so far is the DASH diet cookbook. I haven't seen the most recent one but in the first of the two editions, if I am correct here, the recipes keep 149mg or less of salt per portion.
I'll be back - my kitchen is calling - I'm preserving fresh herbs today - glad you came – and hope I can share a bit of what I have learned. Feel free to ask questions – if I don’t know the answer, I’ll know where to look.
