Low sodium is really tough. I did it for a couple of years but it means pretty much all fresh food.
I'm back up to about 2500 a day and my blood pressure has crept back up so I do need to get back to less processed food.
I need to give up the turkey burgers. Those damn things have about 700 per burger.
Early on, I ate a TON of raw spinach salads with olive oil and red win vinegar. The vinegar gave it a bite to make up for the no salt.
I ate a TON of hamburger. Lots of scrambled eggs with a slice of cheese and 2 slices of bacon. That had some sodium but the rest of my meals had almost none.
Lots of stewed chicken using just onions and herbs to season.
Avoid hot sauce but if you must use it, tabasco as the least salt as long as you STICK to the portion.
Fake Tony seasoning sucks. I used the Paul Prudhomme no salt and it was better, but not great. I used a lot of Mrs. Dash but most of the flavors aren't great.
Lots of garlic and onion flakes.
BEWARE lemon pepper. It has TONS of sodium yet most lemon pepper bottles don't list it. There is a reason it tastes so damn good on chicken and fish. It has lots of salt.
I know TLDR
