Whether you have found this blog through the totally awesome mention in Better Homes and Gardens September Issue or my mom called you and told you to check it out, I just want to begin today by saying…WELCOME!
So old readers, say hello to new readers. And for everyone checking this blog out for the first time, let me tell you a bit about Sodium Girl.
like French fries. A lot.
I also like dancing–especially when there isn’t any music–and pretending to know how to pop and lock. I like immersion blenders; padron peppers; Shabu Shabu; pets with funny names; people with pet names; carbonated water; signing up for things like “circus school;” and laughing. Laughing is my favorite.
I love writing on this blog. And having your eyes (hello, new eyes!) join me as I make my way through this silly, sodium-free life.
I love knowing that when I make salt-free risotto cakes, you are making salt-free risotto cakes too. And that when I spill quinoa on my floor, you’ll be better prepared for kitchen mishaps of your own. And that at least two (if not three) times a week, we all join here to celebrate the fact that we can improve our health with our own two hands, some vinegar, and a pinch of cayenne.
Mostly, I love knowing that with every challenge I face and (without question) eventually conquer, I can help you do the same. And you’ll help me make new discoveries as well.
So new eyes and old eyes, I am so glad you are all here.
Now here’s how you can use the site: there are a couple of posts that are helpful for getting started.
Check out this video to “meet” me and hear how I changed my perspective from feeling limited to limitless.
And if you’re hot to get started on your own journey, check out these posts on dining beyond your kitchen–specifically on how to order in restaurants and how to travel both in the US and abroad. Think: foreign languages.
Of course, if there is a recipe you are looking for, try typing in some key words in the search bar on your right (do you see it? Scroll a little lower. Yes, right there!). Or post a comment below and I’ll be happy to direct you to what you are looking for.
(But just so you know, I’m faster at responding to comments on the site).
And next week, get ready for my new website–with an Amazon store, Yelp restaurant recommendations, and an actual Recipe Index–to be revealed. Stay tuned.
As for what I need from you?
Keep asking questions. Keep experimenting. Keep using your dietary needs as an excuse to live the best life possible and eat food that puts salty plates to shame.
And as always, chow on.
Oh, and say hello!
