Blog on saving money and living on a budget in CT.
Looks like you do a great job using up leftovers!! A definite money saver. I'm curious, though, about some of your meals. I thought you were on a low salt eating plan. My father-in-law is now on a very low sodium diet because of health issues. He's really missing things like ketchup, hot dogs, rice-a-roni, etc. Have you found some good quality substitutes? I'd love to know of the "good" ones, because he doesn't like the low/no salt ones I've found.
Yes, I continue to monitor my sodium. Small tastes/portions of saltier items are selected and I've learned things like mustard contains significantly less sodium than ketchup. That said, yes, I still consume ketchup but in moderation. I recently had calico beans (homemade), macaroni salad (homemade) and hotdogs on buns (these were bought). My homemade items contains a lot less sodium than commerically prepared versions. Should I consume a more salty meal/ingredient, I adjust the rest of my food intake for the day as well as increase my water consumption accordingly.
