Nutrition

What do you mean by “low sodium”?

My husband’s doctor has prescribed a daily sodium limit of 1,000 mg to 1,500 mg per day.  He typically sticks to the low end of that range.  The recipes on this site will range from ~0 mg up to 400 mg per serving.

Do you have any formal training?

No.  I have no formal nutrition training. Nor do I have any formal training as a chef.  I am just a girl who loves to cook and loves the challenge of making low sodium food taste great.

What is the source for nutritional information?

I used a desktop app created by CalorieKing.com. Nutritional analysis is approximate, based upon the weights and measures that I used while developing the recipe.  Using alternate brands of ingredients may change the nutritional values.
