But the online world is amazing for the amount of information out there. I did a search for low-sodium thanksgiving turkey, for example, and found some other greats sites worth checking out as you plan your Thanksgiving.

So don’t despair about enjoying your Thanksgiving meal, you can get the salt out.

You don’t have t spend a ton for a low-sodium turkey either. As I said, I bought
