Lower-Sodium Recipes

Where can I find recipes and tips for cooking with less sodium?

Cooking at home more often is a great way to start changing your relationship with salt. Meals on the go can be hard on your heart, because many prepared foods and restaurant foods are loaded with sodium. And did you know that meals away from home account for nearly half the money Americans spend on food?

Eating healthier (and saving money as an added bonus) isn’t as hard as you might think. With dozens of simple, nutritious recipes, the American Heart Association can help put you at ease in the kitchen. Click the links below to learn more.
