I second that. It sounds like you need to see a nutritionist as far as your "medical diet" goes.

Well heck if we are beating the Chili, I'd like to know how that limited food budget is working out. Sounds like you found some income....

;)

I have some ground lamb, I might just try it in a chili concoction myself!

as for different bases for sloppy joes - i use heinz chili sauce....sort of like spiced ketchup (but not "hot" spicy)...ive seen lots of recipes call for this....brown your meat (turkey, beef, whatever - i really like the idea of lamb) with onion (we skip the peppers)....add the chili sauce until its the thickness you like, some chili (or chilli?) powder, a small squirt of mustard, and a few splashes of worcestershire sauce....best served on cheap white buns....this is my favorite way, and really reminds me of the classic kind as a kid

For those who do not know - Chile is on a 3,000mg sodium restricted diet for Congestive Heart Failure (CHF). The standard recommended sodium content for a CHF diet is either 2,000mg or 3,000mg sodium/day. There are other similar diets online, and basically what you will be given by your physician and/or dietitian - but this one is well laid out and explained for an example: Diet For The Treatment of Heart Failure

While it is true that this recipe could be tweaked to lower the sodium content even more, I applaud Chile for making an effort to follow the advice he was given by his physician and dietitian. It is, if nothing else, a step in the right direction.

There is a debate over the RDA - in the UK it is 1,600mg, the American Heart Association used to be 3,000mg but they dropped it to 2,400mg and now lowered it to 2,300mg - other equally informed and researched sources still have it at 3,000mg - 3,500mg. The only thing they all seem to agree on is nobody knows exactly what the Required daily intake is, and that we all tend to consume more than we need.

Michael, I personally didn't see anyone being anything but supportive to CC and thanks for clarifying, I sometimes forget that not everyone reads every thread! The only question I saw that arose was around the comment "low sodium recipe" that CC posted originally. For anyone just arriving on the forum that might be misleading. For CC it is likely lower than usual but it is by no means an actual low sodium recipe.

Anyone on a restricted sodium diet can find wonderful online resources for calculating the sodium in each and every ingredient they are using in their cooking. If anyone needs help with that I would be happy to help. I regularly put together information for parents to help their kids eat better.

Hey Mich, Your correct but it's hard to stick to a diet like this since you've been eatin normally for years. You know what I mean?


By the way I want to know how I can make my own tomato soup?


I know you start with fresh tomato's, then you can add 600grams of chicken/beef boulin and have tomato soup that's around 600 grams of salt for a pan full, instead of 600 grams of salt in every 1/4th cup of the store bought stuff.

Here's my recipe for sloppy joes:

1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup ketchup
3 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 cup water

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef, onion and green pepper. Drain and return to pan. Add the garlic powder, salt, pepper, ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, Worcestershire Sauce and water. Stir well, cover, reduce heat and cook 20 minutes.



You could certainly leave out the salt, use no salt ketchup and a low-sodium Worcestershire sauce.

This is close to what I make.. I add a bit more Brown sugar but balance it out with cider vinegar.. sweet/sour thing... I also use more Worcestershire sauce than that..
