Welcome to Low Sodium Links!
The goal of this site is to provide resources to people who are on a restricted sodium diet. As you will see, there is no reason to eat bland food with all the resources available today.
I am restricted to 2000 mg of sodium, and 2 liters of water per day. I have not been specifically instructed too, but I am also trying to monitor my potassium as well. I live in Louisiana where we are accustomed to eating food that has a fair amount of seasoning, to say the least. So I began a search to find salt-free replacements for the seasonings that I was accustomed to that were not based on potassium chloride.
In that process I found a lot more than I bargained for. There are so many salt-free and low sodium seasonings and products out there, I may never be able to try them all!
The most important think you can do on a low sodium diet, or any diet for that matter, is to not lie to yourself.
You have to keep accurate records of your sodium intake. To that end, I recommend a product called My Fitness Pal. There are other programs out there, and I don’t mean to slite them, but My Fitness Pal is my choice.
You also need a good recipe manager. My choice is Paprika Recipe Manager. It syncs to your desktop, phone, and tablet. I know there are many others; this is the one my family uses, so it is what I use.
One more thing. If you don’t have one, get an Instant Pot or equivalent. It is amazing what you can do with an IP. It is just my Better Half and me, so we have a 6 quart.
