Low Sodium Ravioli

You may have noticed that I was a bit slow in posting today. Almost twelve hours late. Where did the time go?

I think I lost it with my words, marbles, and vision as my face has been tightly pressed against the computer screen this past month in order to get all the low sodium tips, recipes, and other salt-free nuggets of advice down on (electronic) paper so that sometime next year, it can be in your hands.

That was a really long sentence I think I have lost my ability to punctuate too.

While I reboot my brain, I wanted to give you a sneak peak of some love pockets. Some would call them ravioli. But this blog is about embracing the freedom to be creative with food. So I’ll call them by whatever name I want.

Sorry, did that sound cranky? Then, seriously, check out these love pockets. They’ll fill you with warmth. Herby, buttery, butternut squash warmth. And I rolled the dough by hand. Just for you. Also because I don’t have a pasta roller. But whatever the reason, it was surprisingly easy. It makes me want to do it again. On a school night.

So thanks for hanging in there with me and enjoy virtually making these salt-free raviolis.

Weren’t they easy?

Chow on.

Hi Liz! Here’s the good news: the recipe is in my upcoming low-sodium cookbook. Along with buffalo wings, bloody marys and other super salty eats made without the salt. Here’s the less good news: it’s not coming out until next year. BUT in the meantime, you can often find salt-free pasta sheets (used for ravioli) in many grocery stores or Italian corner stores and then follow a homemade ravioli recipe (without the high-sodium ingredients) to try your hand at making Italian at home. If there is a particular recipe you want to try, let me know. I’m happy to salt-free it for you!

Ravioli is definitely good but it usually has a lot of salt in order to make it taste good. Of course salt is bad when you’re trying to work on a diet. This looks actually quite simple and definitely very good as well. I would really like to try it out for myself and my family.

Where can I buy low sodium foods? I all types of pasta. WHat brands of foods have a low sodium product? I need to keep under 2,000 mgof sodium per day. Any and all help you can provide would be greatly appreciated concerning this matter.
