Cooking with Low or No Salt

We try to watch all labels on each item. It takes getting used to, but it's so much better for you and you feel so much better! Trying not to eat out as much is the first thing, but if you do, try to go to places that have printed information. If you can't do that just do the best you can. Do not salt things when cooking, if you have to salt (say pasta, as it has no seasonings) pour salt in hand and don't go over one quarter teaspoon.

I use seasonings such as McCormick's salt free herbs, they really add flavor. You can also use Mrs. Dash as well, but look out for the ones that are salt based, as I said before look at all labels. Also, when buying prepackaged dinners make sure each meal is under 500 mgs of sodium per meal, not serving.

Another good measure to follow if you are on a low sodium diet is not to go over 2 grams or 2,000 mgs of sodium daily. If you are gonna try this or any other diet check with your doctor first. This has worked for me, but make sure not to cut sodium drastically because it will cause major muscle cramps, I can attest to that. This helped me lower my BP and lose about 13 lbs. to boot!

I don't even salt pasta when it is cooking, by the time I add whatever else to it, that I am going to be adding, the salt isn't missed.
