I have been on a low sodium diet for several years. If
you are starting a low sodium diet, you might find these sources helpful.
When I started my lo-so program, I thought I would have to give up Mexican
food, which I love. However, with some research and communication with
vendors, I have found some excellent low sodium choices. I will add more
foods to this list as I find ones that are as deserving as those listed
here. I intend to list only the best-of-the-best low-sodium foods
here. Please try and enjoy these fine foods, and let me know if you find
others that should be added to this list. Gary Hauser email@example.com
Green Chiles Fajita
Seasoning Salsa Taco Shells Bread
Also, the Healthy
Heart Market offers a very wide variety of nutritious, low-sodium
foods. As we try some of them, we will likely add them to this list.
offers powerfully good, salt-free flame-roasted green chile peppers (0 mg
sodium per 2 tbsp) that make a great addition to salsa, tortilla soup, fajitas,
or tacos. Sold in 16 oz jars. Try the Plain Green Mild before you
venture up to Plain Green Hot! These are quite awesome – take my word for
The Spice Hunter makes
a Fajita Seasoning Salt Free (0 mg sodium per ¼ teaspoon). My wife
discovered this great product – we recommend the fajita recipe that is on each
jar of seasoning. My kids eat these fajitas and they swear they are
better than any they can get in a Mexican or gourmet restaurant anywhere.
When I make it, I use 3 chicken breasts, 1 large onion, 1 red pepper, 1 green
pepper, some green onions if I have them, 2.5 tablespoons of fajita seasoning
(use 2 for mild, 3 for hot), a little less than 1/3 cup of canola oil, and 3
tablespoons of lime juice. This is very close to the recipe on the jar
but tweaked a little for my taste. The Spice Hunter website wants $5.58
per 1.8 oz jar but you can find it elsewhere online for $3.79 (see Fajita
Seasoning at MotherNature.com ). We order it online in bulk (six 1.8
oz jars to a package).
Summertime Gourmet Salsa is available in a 1.06oz packet of
dry seasoning mix that you combine with a 28oz can of crushed or diced
tomatoes. You can use two 14.5oz cans of varying combination to get the salsa
to your preferred consistency. Summertime Gourmet Salsa cost $1.99 per
pack when added with the average cost of a 28oz can of tomatoes ($1.50) you
have a total price of about $3.50. Summertime Salsa has 78 MG of sodium
per 2 tbsp when made with regular canned tomatoes and 8 MG sodium when made
with No Salt Added canned tomatoes (YES! I use the No Salt Added tomatoes).

By far the best taco shells I have ever had are Food City’s
own brand. They have no sodium (0 mg sodium per shell) and are very tasty
– thick and crunchy. They come 12 per package. Stick them in the
microwave for about 30 seconds to heat them.
