Lower Michigan Shopping List
Sometimes... we just don't have the time to make everything homemade.
If the label says... LOW FAT... those who can not, or should not eat meals with salt... BE AWARE... most low fat items are higher in sodium than the regular brand. Choose the lower sodium item... but remember to conitue to watch your fat intake.
Three things in the market place today make food taste good... SALT, SUGAR and FAT. If you take one away, or lower it... they seem to increase one of the others... learn to watch the labels.
The products we've found... are lower in sodium than other brands... BUT... some are high in fat... some can be eaten... as long as you watch the amount of fat you eat. Some should only be eaten once in a great while.
Items listed below can be found in many shops
Promise Margarine (blue container) ... 55mg - 1 tablespoon
Edy's Vanilla Ice Cream... 30mg sodium - 1/2 cup serving
Fresh Fruits and Vegetables ... low in sodium
Canned Vegetables - You'll find many low salt/no salt vegetables Meijers is a great place to find DelMonte and Hunts low salt - no salt brands... no salt peas (I like fresh pea pods), spinach (Popeye no salt added ... yum), corn (I like the frozen corn better), cream corn (yum), green beans (I like fresh beans better), stewed and diced tomatoes (yum) and more.
No Salt Added... this means that they did not add any salt ... but... there may be sodium found in the natural fresh foods... such as the Popeye no salt added spinach... has 35mg sodium per 1/2 cup servings.
I Can't Believe it's Not Butter spray... boil up some asparagus... and spray with the butter spray on each piece just before you eat them ... oh yum... nice and buttery tasting! Use this butter spray on other vegetables... popcorn... bread.
