What Are the Best Resources for Low-Sodium Cooking?

Q: My father went through major heart surgery earlier this year, and while he is recovering well, my mom is having a hard time adapting to cooking for his new dietary needs. He needs to maintain a low-sodium diet for his blood pressure, and he has to avoid leafy greens due to blood-thinner medication.

My mom is a wonderful and instinctive cook, but she now has to rethink a lifetime of kitchen experience to come up with a totally new approach to cooking. Do you know of any reliable resources for healthy, low-sodium recipes … that don’t taste terrible? Thanks so much!

In addition to sharing tips on our site, Kitchn contributor Jessica Goldman Foung writes a blog devoted to low-sodium cooking and has also written a cookbook on the topic.

Kitchn readers, do you have any recommendations for low-sodium cooking resources that would be useful to Paige’s family?
