Did you catch this?

Although I prefer not to buy canned foods, sometimes you need to for convenience.
I've been lucky to find very low sodium tuna in my local supermarket, but looked everywhere for salmon and couldn't find any.

Who would have thought would be the best source for this?

Crown Prince Natural Alaskan Salmon No Salt Added is really delish!

It's got 50 mg of sodium per serving, has 1.5g of omega-3 per serving and it's wild caught.

Some people object to the bones and skin, but if you mash it really well you don't even notice them. I use it for salmon salad, croquettes or sometimes I just throw in the skillet and saute with some onions.

You have to buy a case of 12, but that's fine. It beats running around and wasting gas and your time. Check it out!

It's Been A While


I didn't realize I neglected this blog for so long.
Well I'm back.

Please check in to see what I've found.

I'll leave you with this for now:

Many food manufacturers have embraced the low-fat, no trans fat bandwagon, but still haven't addressed the high amount of sodium in their products. Even if the sodium is within daily dietary guidelines, items with 600 or more grams per serving is still too much for many salt-sensitive people.

In addition, some low-salt or no-salt items may have a lot of fat in them, so you've always got to read your labels to make the best choice.

This article by Leslie Beck of the Globe and Mail shows what to look for when buying frozen entrees.

Personally, I still think some of her recommendations are too high, but it is a slight improvement over what I've seen so far.
