    These are delicious! I too have Meniere’s and try to limit my sodium intake to under 1000 per day. I have lost most of my hearing in my left ear, but haven’t had any vertigo episodes for over a year. I have tried many of your recipes. I particularly loved the Slow Cooker Lentil Vegetable Soup and That Pasta Salad, as well as the Cashew Chicken. Salt adds a particular taste that is very hard to replace!!

      Hi Nancy! I’m so sorry to hear about your hearing (no pun intended..) but thrilled that the vertigo has been in check for so long. So glad you’re enjoying the recipes! Wishing you much health and happiness, Christy 🙂
