The ultimate low sodium slow cooker cookbook - Sara Craig



We all tend to see ourselves work against time. Cooking is one that quickly falls by the wayside. Of all the activities that are important for us daily. We can simply go for fast foods and dishes away from home that can bring about a diet that is not good for our hearts.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has noted that heart disease is the underlying cause of mortality in the United States, which accounts for over 50 percent of individual deaths in 2015. Amendable risk factors for heart disease include diet, physical activity, diabetes, body weight, and intake of alcohol. Consuming an excellent and heart-healthy diet can play a significant role in losing weight, if need be, and in keeping or recovering heart health.

A slow cooker is the primary household appliance for making heart-healthy food. The low-and-slow cooking style promotes texture and taste without the addition of fat or salt. When my friends begin to use their slow cookers to make easy recipes, they then notice how simple improving their diet could be. That’s the essential aspect of being a dietitian, helping individuals to discover that the lightbulb period when they see that preparing easy meals at home can make them healthy and still ensure that they enjoy their meals.

I wrote the recipes in this book with the idea of the slow cooker in mind. You won’t see compulsory precooking conditions here; just make everything and place it into the slow cooker. And the majority of the main dishes cook for about 8 hours, which ensures that you can leave for work and get back home to dinner. I do hope that these recipes will assist you in maintaining your diet needs and health and also improve the quality of life.

Slow Cooking for Healthy Heart


When we consider not just consuming but also consuming healthily, we frequently are left with a lot of questions than answers. What does a heart-healthy diet mean, anyway? What are the foods to eat to prevent or combat heart disease?

It’s of utmost importance to know that what is healthy for one individual may not be fit for another. Nutrition is general science, so we must see the point where heart health and nutrition meets. To do so, we need to look at three significant parts to the diet: fat, sodium, and fiber. Let’s look into this a bit.

FAT: sticking to a diet low in trans and saturated fats bring about levels of healthy blood cholesterol with surplus saturated fat, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol increases. Worse still, trans fats lead to LDL cholesterol to get high and cardioprotective high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol to reduce. Combining polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats can help reduce LDL cholesterol levels, thus lowering the risk of stroke and heart disease. Omega-3 fatty acids contained in fish, walnuts, canola oil, and flaxseed—are needed for good health and not manufactured by the body, so we must depend on food to get them.

SODIUM: High blood pressure is 1 of the fundamental risk factors of heart disease, but reducing the sodium in our diet can assist in stabilizing blood pressure. Sodium is majorly for fluid balancing in the body, and surplus sodium gets water into the blood vessels. This rise in the volume of blood brings about the body needs to pump added blood and, which results in the increase of pressure within the blood vessels. With time, this rise in pressure can lead to harm to the walls of the vessel and add to the development of plaque that can hinder blood flow. A low-sodium diet can lower your risk of heart attacks and headaches.

FIBER: Consuming a diet rich in fiber helps lower both LDL cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Fiber stays undigested and assists in promoting a healthy gut biome as it provides satiety, which is an essential point of a good meal plan. Foods that have five or more grams of fiber(dietary) in a single serving are called high-fiber foods. These foods are mostly rich in folate, B vitamins, magnesium, and iron.


Limiting our intake of trans fat and saturated fat is essential to heart health. Ensure that you limit saturated fat to not over than 13 grams daily, or to about 5 to 6 % of calories. Saturated fat is the essential diet-related stimulator for an increased LDL cholesterol level. Picking low-fat or fat-free dairy and lean meats, and combining vegetarian alternatives, are all good ways to lower saturated fat in our diet. Along the same lines, picking reduced-fat condiments and ingredients can drastically reduce the number of saturated fat you consume.

Trans fats can are common in a lot of prepared foods in the area of partly hydrogenated oils. Observing the ingredient list for partially hydrogenated oil of any kind is essential to identify trans fat because amounts lower than 0.5 gram each serving are not to need to be recorded over the nutrition facts section. Although most animal products have small amounts of naturally existing trans fat, we get the vast majority of trans fat in our meals from processed foods, such as doughnuts,  biscuits, cakes, frozen pizza, crackers, cookies, and margarine.

A helpful method is using liquid oils in place of solid fats, if possible. Liquid oils are rich in heart-healthy polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. Other origins of healthy unsaturated fats include avocado, nuts, and nut butter, fish, seeds,  and olives. But keep in mind the sodium contained in most of these foods.


Sodium popularly referred to as salt, is in mostly all that we consume. And we require it—just not an excess of it. A lot of us are knowledgable that we should go gently on the salt shaker, or stop it totally, but the salt obtained from prepared and packed foods gives, the bulk of the sodium we eat—about 75 %. Even lowered-sodium foods can contain high amounts of sodium.

The nutrition facts section is the best place to get the exact sodium quantity in the packaged foods we consume. Sodium is listed as any volume of ingredients that contain sodium, such as sodium nitrate, monosodium glutamate,  or sodium citrate, to name a few. Be mindful of the serving size pointed out on the label and modified the quantity used accordingly.

So, what amount is too much? This often varies according to individuals, but an excellent point to start is between 1,500 to 2,300 milligrams each day. One thing to take note of: When you are used to watching individual ingredient sections, the sodium content for complete prepared meals can most times seem very high. I’ve reduced the sodium for some recipes to not over 700 milligrams each serving. You can also balance out each meal with reduced-sodium snacks and meals that include few or no sodium, which contains vegetables and fresh fruits. For instance, foods that contain below 140 milligrams each serving can be referred to as low-sodium items, and foods that have below 5 milligrams each meal can be referred to as sodium-free.

Generally, we consume a lot of sodium. If you are older than 50 and are African American or have hypertension, diabetes,  chronic kidney disease, or heart issues, you are in a category that's of high-risk. You should carefully monitor your consumption of sodium. If you’re unsure of the quantity of salt you take daily, begin by adding your consumption according to nutrition labels. Higher volume of foods rich in potassium in your diet can assist in decreasing your sodium consumption, helps reduces blood pressure, and help the heart muscles work perfectly. Included in the recipes are substitutes that we can use in place
