I'm looking for low sodium meals to help maintain my blood pressure as well as heart healthy.

Almost all of the recipes on EatFresh.org qualify as low-sodium and heart-healthy recipes. I recommend double checking the nutrition facts at the bottom of a recipe for saturated fat and sodium, however, before you cook it. It is best to work with your doctor to develop a plan that fits your specific health goals. You may also be able to work with a Registered Dietian through your health clinic for more specific guidance.

These are a few recipes that might fit your needs:

Why is there no cholesterol info listed for the recipes? Is there anyway that we can get that listed? I need the info to determine if the recipe is doable for me. Thanks!

Great question! Our recipes on EatFresh.org don't list cholesterol in the nutrition facts because the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans does not recommend a specific limit of cholesterol for a healthy diet. However, they do recommend eating a little dietary cholesterol as possible. Foods that are higher in dietary cholesterol (like fatty meats and high-fat dairy products) are also higher in saturated fats. Saturated fat should be limited to 10% of total calories per day.

It sounds like your health has been improving, and it's great to hear you are walking daily! Unfortunately, I can't give nutrition advice for medical conditions over the internet. It is best to talk with your doctor about diet changes. There may be a registered dietitian (RD) on staff who you can work with and develop a plan for your diet.
