After my second heart attack...
I was told that I now have Congestive Heart Failure

When you have Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) doctors say that you should not eat more than 2000mg of sodium a day (You should only have 400mg of salt or less for each meal) ...the average person eats WAY MORE than this. A meal at fast food restaurants can be well over this suggested amount of sodium.

It isn't easy to find foods that are low in sodium... and taste good... so we thought we would share what we've found. Your taste may be different than ours... add spices that you like to make your meals taste great! You don't have to give up foods that taste good... you just have to give up the overdose of salt that our Hearts do not need.

Mozzarella Cheese Low Salt and No Salt

Cheese suggestion: Grate the cheese... put it in the freezer. ALSO... no salt cheese... is rather... hum... drab tasting... so I mix 1 part no salt with 1 part low salt cheese. As long as you don't exceed your sodium intake for a meal this is a great way to add cheese... and keep the sodium count down.

PS... check out Swiss Cheese... you'll find that swiss cheese is usually lower in salt than other cheeses.
