Sodium (or salt), is something that many of us love and the average American consumes an incredible 3,400 mg of sodium a day!
As sodium is very much a part of our diet, it has led to many health issues and relates to risks of hypertension, heart disease and kidney problems, just to name a few conditions. As a result, an increasingly common dietary requirement now is that of a low-sodium diet. It would be easy to assume that if you are going to have to omit salt from your diet, that you will also be missing out on flavor. You might think that you will have to put up with boring and tasteless meals, but nothing could be further from the truth! Part of the attraction of using a meal kit service, is that they create delicious meals that are filled with healthy ingredients that meet all the requirements of your low-sodium needs. As a bonus, using a meal kit service also means that your meal planning, grocery shopping and portion control is already done for you! All that is left for you to do is to enjoy your low-sodium meals and you can rest assured they are good for you as well!
Today we are going to be looking at the two companies that we believe best cater for a low-sodium diet.
These two companies are Sun Basket and Silver Cuisine by BistroMD.
