12 Low Sodium Slow Cooker Dinner Recipes

Make smart food choices with these easy, low sodium crockpot recipes.

Have you ever noticed how high the sodium content in slow cooker recipes are? While many slow cooker recipes claim to be healthy, upon further investigation, the sodium content is nearly 75% of the American Heart Association’s ideal daily limit of 1,500 milligrams (mg).

The average diet is so high in packaged and processed foods, it is estimated Americans consume 3,400mg of sodium on a daily basis.

A diet high in sodium will increase your chances for high blood pressure, stroke, kidney disease, and other chronic illnesses. Furthermore, sodium is known to increase water retention, bloating, and weight gain.

Therefore, it is important to choose recipes that are low in sodium; cutting back even 1,000mg each day can significantly improve your heart health.
