My wife is on a very low Sodium diet - 1,200 mg per day. I tried searching for the phrase "low sodium" in the Recipes section but the results were disappointing.

Is there a way to search for specific values of nutrients within the Recipes? I'm thinking you could specify something like the minimum or maximum value foe specific nutrients.

I found myself eating very low sodium for a while, not through intent but because I fell into the habit. I actually had to ask my doctor if it was possible to get too little sodium, because sometimes I was only consuming 500-700mg/day.

Rather than offer specific recipes, I'll offer some principles: cook with real food rather than food products. Fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, seafood, eggs and dairy all have relatively small amounts of sodium in them. You can pretty much eat them to your heart's content (no pun intended) and stay under 1200mg/day.
