Low Sodium Keto Recipes | Deliciously Limit Sodium Intake

Want to limit your consumption of foods that contain a lot of sodium on the keto diet? If your answer is yes, here are 5 low sodium keto recipes we’ve compiled for you.

Why You Should Try Low Sodium Keto Recipes?

Although sodium may sound scary, it is a mineral that is essential for ensuring that the body gets enough water, for successful cell replacement, and for maintaining blood homeostasis and other vital functions.

But despite being so necessary for survival, the body only needs a small amount of sodium.

In short, foods low in sodium are foods that have 5% of the body’s daily requirement for minerals.

On the other hand, those with 20% or more are considered foods high in sodium. So, 140 mg of sodium or less per serving means that the dish is low in sodium.

So why you should try low sodium keto recipes?

  1. Excess sodium intake can lead to hypertension, a risk factor for heart disease, but following this type of diet lowers blood pressure. (1)
  2. Adopting these eating habits can relieve constipation or fluid retention. (2)
  3. This eating habit helps in weight loss. (3)

It is not possible to completely cut this mineral from your life. But it is possible to find a balance. So how is this balance found?

Do not use salt when cooking:

Foods naturally contain salt. You can use vinegar, spices, or lemon to enhance the flavor of food.

Change your cooking method:

Cooking methods often take away the natural flavor of foods. You can steam them.

Now we bring you recipes that are compatible with this diet. But if you have a sodium-related illness, your doctor will recommend the best diet for you.

At this point, we recommend that you do not make any major changes in your diet without consulting a nutritionist.
