Low salt is difficult and requires monitoring closely. As I have had a heart attack I am supposed to limite sodium to 1500 mg/d.so I look very closely at sodium.
For instance you can generally substitute frozen for canned (less salt but check the labels!) Use salt substitutes (there are lots available and the $1 store has a great one here). Check brands as well...some brands have less salt than others.
I also shop at the Amish store in town....their Amish made products have less preservatives (if any) and generally less salt.
This is not impossible, but also I look at the whole week or month. Once or twice a month I go over 2000....and that is pretty reasonable. (The days I cook with Soy Sauce---reduced sodium of course)
