When I am developing diabetic recipes, I would say my greatest challenge isn’t about fat or carbs, but sodium. When people have health issues and need to have a lower sodium diet, they are surprised when I steer them to my diabetic cookbook. In all my cookbooks, I include sodium in the nutritional information, however, not all the recipes fit into the Americans Diabetes Association guidelines. There are some astonishing facts I have found. Most people think the majority of salt comes from the salt added to food when cooking and eating. But, 80 to 90% of American daily sodium intake actually comes from restaurant meals or processed foods. With that in mind, there are ways to control your salt intake easier than you think by preparing home-cooked meals!
