If you like to explore new recipe/food sites do look at :
ChooseMyPlate.gov Weekly Digest Bulletin
I found the food tips helpful and the recipe section full of quick, easy and nutritious dishes.
I searched for the low sodium section and found many helpful recipes there that are simple and reasonable with short lists of ingredients (I skip recipes that have long lists of requirements!). The nutrition lists with the recipes are helpful especially for my low sodium diet. A caution – use no added sodium instead of just low sodium (have you looked at canned soups that claim “lower” sodium? – avoid them) Also the sodium count is higher than necessary for some of the foods because of the kind and/or the amount of cheese used. I have found cheese to use that is naturally or processed to be really low sodium and been pleased with them. . .if not in a local store, I can’t recommend any site more reliable and with more selections than Amazon.
I don’t go grocery shopping in my wheelchair and although I have a wonderful HomeHealth Aide who will shop for me, it isn’t always satisfactory. I find I want to be “in control” as much as I can. Shopping over the internet is proving most satisfactory and Amazon gets my order here in two days usually.
I am starting to make a switch from local grocery deliveries to Amazon’s Basket. In my first order, compared to the same items from local shopping and delivery service, I saved $16.62 – same amounts, same brands.
