I am, along with my wife, trying to find creative ways to lower our sodium intake. The AHA recommends a diet consisting of less than 1500 mg of sodium daily - yet most Americans eat at least twice that. I believe now, having spent most of a morning looking through grocer shelves to determine sodium levels, that twice the level might actually be a very low estimate. Most of our salt intake is from foods that are already high in sodium or from prepackaged foods that carry unusually high levels - cause it makes it taste good.
So for lunch we are eating a small plate of pasta topped with a spoonful of beef cooked with onion and garlic. A spoonful of low sodium pasta sauce and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese finishes the dish. I have got to find some websites with good variety of recipes using low sodium foods.
This is tougher than I thought. Very hard to find sodium friendly foods.
