I do eat a fair amount of packaged foods and I get way too much sodium in my diet. My blood pressure reflects that and I want to cut out some of it to begin with and over time reduce it even more (the packaged food with sodium). My cooking skills are pretty poor and in fact I can't hardly cook at all. I do eat a lot of rice and meats because I exercise a lot. I do know sodium is important but at the same time I have been told to cut back because my blood pressure gets kind of high sometimes. It's tough because I am so busy being a college student but I have taken steps in reducing this like buying reduced sodium soups, eating more plant-derived foods, and also being more active compared to what I used to be like.

Are there any foods in specific that are low-sodium that are easy to make? I am not looking to watch a bunch of YouTube videos on how to cook things as I absolutely hate doing that but rather just want some suggestions on how to help me. I am slowly learning how to cook things on my own but it is not easy for me as I have a hard time remembering how to prepare certain foods.

Can't share your choice of eating packaged food. Think it brings only harm to your health

Have you considered trying a meal service like Hello Fresh or one of the others? They put all ingredients together and send them to you with instructions for you to prepare. Its real food, you can specify low sodium and other dietary and taste preferences and from what I have heard from friends who have ordered, its still very economical because there is virtually no waste. I have heard tons of great things about this option and have been considering trying it myself!
