    Hi! It’s so hard to find a website with a variety of low sodium recipes. My little girl is about to turn 7 and we’re trying to plan her birthday party. We’re trying to keep her blood pressure down, but still eat fairly “normal”. Thanks so much for all of the recipes!

    Isn’t parmesan cheese high in sodium?
