Low Sodium

I've mentioned before that I'm going to be on a low sodium diet. I've been reading up a lot on the Benefits of a Low Sodium Diet and think it is really the best fit for me at this point in my life. The thing that stuck out is: a Low Sodium Diet is healthy for everyone.
Although I don't have high blood pressure, I do get bloating and swelling and constipation often. I can always feel when I've eaten "badly" and carrying "water weight."
I'm using this as a shopping list guide. Basically I'm just trying to incorporate more whole fruits/veggies/lean meat and back off from the processed, fatty food. This also means stepping away from the pop [soda] and reduce the amount of times eating out.

Here are some recipes that are on my mind to try: (click the link for directions)

Hopefully these work out for me! In the meantime I'm going to be packing my lunch full of  fruits and vegetables..and let's not forget 100oz of water a day :)

I definitely think low sodium is beneficial! I like the fact I don't feel bloated too :)

Good luck with everything!

I too can feel when I've had just one day of too much sodium. Like yesterday. My rings get tighter and I just know the scale will not be friendly the next day.
