Any good LOW/NO SALT main menu ideas? I still want to eat well and keep my BP down! Seems to be a challenge.

I help reduce salt by any recipe that is NOT baking... I remove the salt from the equation. I salt to taste at the end. Most of the time salt is added to speed the cooking time and boost flavor. If you get good ingredients and use good spices the salt winds up being way to much. Baking, salt is needed to make the chemical equation work. You can't really take it out, maybe reduce it but not zero it out

I don't put salt at all unless I bake and in this case I reduce to a very low minimum (i.e. recipe ask for 1/2 tsp, I put 1/8 tsp). Also when I do use salt, which is next to never, I use Kosher salt which I've read is better for you. I prefer cooking with herbs & spices which gives such a wonderful aroma and flavor to food and helps reduce or eliminate your salt intake. If you search on the internet, you'll discover how many fresh herbs have great benefits to your health. Enjoy what Mother Nature give us and forget the sodium (unless you're baking)!

An excellent recipe for technique as much as anything, as the few coating ingredients of buttermilk, flour and paprika are not difficult to combine!

ktd, take a look at this. Adding some potassium-rich foods also help blood pressure. http://www.dashdiet.org/

Cottage cheese lends a lighter texture to chicken and cheese enchiladas, bathed in classic red enchilada sauce.

Hi KTD, this recipe has both taco seasoning & salt. You could eliminate the salt Or make your own taco seasoning. Brb.

Cottage cheese is really high in sodium.

Chili powder, cumin, paprika, and a few other easy-to-find spices make up this taco mix recipe. Cheaper than packaged versions!

Maybe use half the salt.

Here's some suggestions: Instead of salt in a recipe substitute: Celery (celery is naturally salty) Seaweed - sample some, they are very salty and good for you. Use Celtic Sea Salt or any Natural Sea salt, it contains minerals and therefore much more balanced than regular table salt. Hope that helps! Chrissy

This hot and sweet salmon dish can be done in the oven or on the grill. My Dad has been making this for us for years. Serve with new potatoes, corn, green salad and rolls.
