10 Easy Dinners That Aren’t Overloaded With Salt

1. Blackened Chicken Breasts with Avocado Cream Sauce

grid-cell-22818-1469809695-5

There’s a little added salt in the avocado cream sauce, but otherwise, the flavor comes from the blackened seasoning — a mix of spices that you can DIY or buy — plus a quick squeeze of lemon on top.

4. Low-Sodium Buffalo Wings and DIY Ranch Dipping Sauce

5. Easy Pasta Primavera

Pasta dinners can be a no-go if you’re watching your intake, since sauces can often be total salt bombs. This one keeps it light (and bright!) with lots of vegetables — like sweet cherry tomatoes and ripe zucchini — sautéed in onions, garlic, and a splash of white wine.

6. Paleo Taco Salad

8. Flank Steak with Asparagus and Sweet Potato-Turnip Mash

The whole plate clocks in at 537 mg sodium — but if you need to, you could cut that even more by using a little less tamari (or subbing in reduced-sodium tamari) in the marinade.

7. Spiced Salmon Patties

The secret is swapping in Dukka spice — a flavorful DIY blend of toasted nuts, seeds, and spices — in place of higher-sodium breadcrumbs.

9. Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Chili

You could sub in both low-sodium vegetable broth and black beans here as well — the other spices (chili powder, cumin, paprika, coriander, and cayenne) will still pull their weight.

10. One-Pot Lemon Herb Chicken & Rice

sub-buzz-2707-1469325039-1

This recipe uses low-sodium chicken broth to flavor the rice. You could also take it one step further by swapping regular butter for unsalted butter — you’ll still get the creaminess, plus added flavor from fresh herbs and lemon.
