5 low-sodium meals to consider

Salt has become my sworn enemy because of its impact on my weight and blood pressure, so I’ve been working hard to redo recipes to get the salt out since my 2012 angioplasty. Check my recipe page for some great recipes that have a minimum of salt.

Recently, I saw this headline, 5 Low-Sodium Meals That Won’t Make You Reach for the Salt Shaker and was intrigued, so I check it out on Cafemom.com.

At least two of these actually sound good to me and don;t seem to compensate for the lack of salt by adding fat and/or sugar. I’d try the Alaskan BBQ Salmon and the Mini Turkey Meatballs. Salmon and ground turkey are two of my go-to proteins these days. I would cut the sugar in the salmon however, honey and sugar seem like too much sweetness and too much sugar. Or use a low-sugar, low-salt barbecue sauce like LocalFolks.

The link to the turkey meatballs isn’t working so I can’t examine the ingredients list, but I like the concept. Try adding Italian seasoning and some low-fat parmesan cheese for flavor.

I’d try the Penne With Cherry Tomatoes, Asparagus, and Goat Cheese but would substitute fat-free feta instead of the goat cheese.
