Wanted a place were I can go and find lower sodium dishes, and a place I can discuss the frustration of taking salt out of a family's diet.....husband's family has a history of heart disease and salt is a big factor of being over weight!!! We need to help one another....well, I know I need help from others!!!

PLEASE if you post a recipe....PLEASE let me know the amount of SODIUM in each serving...if Possible!!! THANK YOU!!! :)

Sodium guidelines:
Low sodium = 140 mg or less per serving
No sodium = less than 5 mg per serving

Reduced Sodium Cheddar

I tried to get this brand "Heluva Good" to bring their reduced sodium cheddar (25 mgs/oz) into local stores here in northern VT but they won't. Fortunately they have a mail order store, where you can buy a four-pack for about $15:

"Call our toll-free number (1-800-445-0269) Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. Please have your American Express, Discover, Visa, or MasterCard number handy."

You can look at their cheeses at:

Chef Paul Prudhomme - Salt Free Seasonings

Saw some good press on Chef Paul's (of Cajun Cuisine fame) MAGIC salt free seasoning. He's introduced a range of salt-free spice blends: Lemon & Cracked Pepper, Toasted Onion and Garlic, Sweet & Spicy. Good because more companies are becoming aware of the need for low or no-sodium foods.
