The American Diabetes Association lists these suggestions to choose healthier versions of typically high-sodium convenience foods:
- Look for frozen meal options that contain 600 milligrams (mg) of sodium or less per serving.
- Choose fresh mozzarella packed in water or Swiss cheese as low-sodium options; cut back on cheese in recipes.
- If you buy canned vegetables or beans, choose versions with low sodium or no sodium added; rinse them before eating.
- Stick to fresh, lean meats and other protein choices, and restrict cured, processed meats in your diet.
- Check labels on condiments, as they often are high in sodium.
- Make homemade soups and broths or buy low-sodium versions; avoid pickled foods.
