My suggestion for the low salt is to greatly increase other spices in your soup...garlic, pepper, basil etc etc - whatever types of spices you like.

I can do it!!

Hello Team!!! emoticon
I used to make a lot of home made soups in my slow cooker using store bought broths, however I recently started severely limiting my sodium due to extremely high BP. I would love to find a way to make flavorful soups with out the sodium of the store bought broths (even the ones marketed as Low Sodium are higher than I want). And the worst products I've ever tasted are the N0-Sodium salt substitutes!!!! Anyone out there have some tricks/recipes for soups with low sodium that taste good? Would appreciate all ideas and THANKS!!!

Welcome! You will find the more you cook, the better you get at not just cooking but adjusting recipes down to what you need. You'll also find that you want to eat out less, though that may not include Mom's cooking.

Welocme Miss.. It does help if you can do your own cooking unless your Mom is willing to adjust hers to fit your new food plan. It does give you more control. But also it can be adventure finding new healthier foods that you like and new ways to cook familiar ones. Good luck.

Hi everyone! Well, I'm a 27 female living on my own and I can admit that I never cook. I live very close to my Mom, so I usually just eat dinner with her. However, (and this is a BIG however) I finally am starting to want to learn to cook!

The idea of having full control over everything going into my body, and being more responsible for what I'm eating and how it's making me feel, is something I'm finally ready for.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to reading everyones cooking and recipe ideas.
