Lower-Sodium Ketchup


It goes without saying that ketchup (about 160 mg sodium per tablespoon) usually accompanies salty fries or hot dogs; so to decrease the sodium content of the entire meal, dilute this topping by blending a little prepared ketchup with pureed no-salt-added canned tomatoes. Or make your own version like this Heirloom Tomato Ketchup for just 79 mg sodium per tablespoon.  And yes, making your own ketchup is almost as easy as flipping open the squeeze bottle.
