Welcome back to our series on reducing sodium in your diet! In our previous two posts, we covered cooking techniques and ingredient swaps to help you lower your sodium intake. But now, it's time to talk about meal planning tips. And, of course, we'll be featuring some amazing eco-friendly kitchen products from Two Pillars to help you along the way.
1: Plan Your Meals Ahead of Time
One of the best ways to reduce your sodium intake is to plan your meals ahead of time. When you plan your meals, you can control the amount of sodium in each dish and avoid the temptation to order takeout or eat convenience foods. Plus, you can use up leftovers more efficiently with the help of the Duo Cover® , which increases the moisture in your food and delivers leftovers that taste better than the first time. And, of course, it saves your fingers from those 'ouchie' moments when plates get hot!
2: Use Reusable Storage Bags
Using reusable storage bags like the ZipBag® is an easy way to store leftovers and snacks without resorting to plastic bags. These bags are perfect for storing fresh produce or leftovers, bringing food on the go, or even cooking sous vide. They're also dishwasher safe and a great way to reduce waste in your kitchen.
3: Cut Back on Processed Foods
Processed foods are notorious for being high in sodium. When you cut back on processed foods, you can reduce your sodium intake and make healthier choices. The Swedish Dishcloth can help with the cleanup process, as it's a perfect, all-natural substitute for paper towels and cleaning cloths. With just one Swedish Dishcloth, you can replace 17 rolls of paper towels, and they're compostable too!
4: Experiment with New Flavors
Reducing your sodium intake doesn't have to mean sacrificing flavor. Experiment with new flavors like herbs, spices, and citrus to add depth to your dishes. And with the UniLid® , a universal lid that fits all shapes and sizes with food tracking, you can easily store and reheat your meals with a tight, eco-friendly seal.
By planning your meals ahead of time, using reusable storage bags, cutting back on processed foods, and experimenting with new flavors, you can easily reduce your sodium intake. And with the help of Two Pillars' amazing eco-friendly kitchen products, you can do it in style.
