I'm on a low sodium diet since I have congestive heart failure. I've learned how to make pretty much everything low sodium.

Vinegars trick your taste buds so it helps with not having salt.

Different spices too. I have more different spices in my cabinets then what I used to. LOL.

I highly recommend Dick Logue's cookbooks You could also ask your library to get the books too. Most libraries can borrow from other libraries. I have 3 of his cookbooks. He used to have recipes online too, but his site is no longer up.

Using spices more can help trick your mind into thinking you're having salt.

To greatly reduce the sodium of canned vegetables. Drain canning liquid and replace with clean water. Let vegies stand in that water for 5 minutes and drain. Any type of prepared food contains sodium (a preservative). It is important to read labels. Check the sodium levels of the condiments you prefer to use.

I also have to watch my sodium. I use the same recipes but I make changes to lower the sodium. If it calls for canned tomatoes or beans, I either use fresh or buy the sodium free or low sodium ones. I use fresh or frozen veggies instead of canned. Many canned or frozen foods have a lot of sodium. It's better to make it yourself.
Here's some links to give some ideas on lower fats:

And sodium:

Hope this helps.

I'm looking at Spark Recipes that are vary in fat range from 3g - 30 g (I prefer 3) but extremely high in sodium. I'm informed by my doctor I need to lower my sodium because he said I have water retention because of high sodium, so sodium is the first thing I look at before I purchase.

I found frozen spaghetti made from whole wheat in freezer and I use ground turkey for the meet because it's lower in fat than beef is. I'm looking for something to bake using bread crumbs as crust for casserole, pizza or quiche. I have a full loaf of bread sliced and I have some french bread i often use as garlic bread. I like to bake and don't exactly like doing dishes (but I clean them!) but that's all part of the job.

Any and all ideas for low fat and low sodium recipes are all greatly appreciated. Thank you and have a great day!

Make one small change at a time. Even the smallest things make the biggest difference especially in weight loss :)
