Low Salt/Low Potassium Recipes

I need help. My dear husband has to take out as much potassium and salt as possible due to being diabetic. He is trying to get on transplant list for new kidney. So I would like ideas on what I can cook. Also any package mixes like taco and all other mixes I can reduce salt content.

I'm not sure about Potasium but there are many resources for low sodium diets. The DASH diet seems to be the most popular. The biggest offenders of high sodium is processed foods. The food you normally buy that's pre-packaged. Salt is used as a preservative as well as flavor. So the more home cooked meals the better. But watch what you put in your meals as well.

A lot of the sauces and condiments are very high in Sodium. Be careful reading the labels as well. Some companies will list low sodium per helping. But their helpings are ridiculously low compared to other brands. The normal intake of sodium for people over 55 and African Americans should be 1500 mg. Most people get probably 3 times that amount. A typical pizza is sometimes as high as 6,000 to 7,000 mg. I make my own pizzas that ends up with about 300-500 mg. Restaurant foods are just as high in sodium, if not higher, then pre-packaged foods.


I watched an interesting DVD about a raw food diet over a year ago but can't remember the name of it. I'll have to look at home to see if I still have it. I'll post it if I find it. SUPPOSEDLY, it cured some people with type 2 diabetes.
