someone in my family has high blood pressure, at a very young age. now I need to start cooking only low sodium meals.

Any ideas? I do not use a lot of salt as it is, but now I have to cut out a lot of the pre-made sauces and anything proccessed. This person is somewhat picky about vegis. raw vegis are ok but does not like stir fry's or those types of hot vegi dishes. we can not afford to eat a lot of meat.

I need ideas for weekdays and shabbos!

Thanks!

thanks pineapple. if you could post, that would be great. I do make my own salad dressings, but even the ingrediants to make my own sauces are not always low sodium.

I also want to add, that I am looking for meals that are filling more than just beans or eggs... I also send this person with a lunch during the day, so ideas for that would be good.

Canned products such as beans, tomato products, etc. are all available in no-salt-added formulations. Same for canned tuna and salmon. There's no-salt-added ketchup as well, and spice blends that have no salt. Spend an afternoon label-reading, and you'll be surprised at how much good stuff is available! You will, however, have to kiss all canned and powdered soup mixes goodbye. Even the low-sodium versions were too high according to the guidelines I was given.

Basically, salt is an add-in, so it's easy to substitute flavourings such as lemon juice, garlic, balsamic vinegar, etc. When you make a stew, brown the meat and deglaze with wine. This will add real depth of flavour.
