The grass is just fine right here

Sometimes I have fantasies about a brand new kitchen with cabinet doors that latch closed or drawers that don’t leave sawdust behind when they get opened.  BUT, other times…most times, I make a cake or a recipe and follow a vintage recipe and things turn out just fine.  Today I made these amazing pitas using…

Celebrations and Other Stuff

It’s been a little while. Okay, a long while. Life has taken some detours. Meniere’s Disease tends to do that. This blog was supposed to be about food and low sodium, but it’s taken me to other blogs and stories about people who have this pain in the ass disease. So, our most recent adventures…

Rubbing salt in the wound

So, sorry this isn’t quite a food post. We have had plenty of great low sodium meals. Mad props to Panera for narrowing down a a few clean and low sodium menu items. Anywho… To put it plainly, Meniere’s Disease is being an asshat. I suppose my husband is in a new stage of this…

Feeling Saucy

Another great and low sodium convenience food thanks to Trader Joes. The hardest part of low sodium is making everything from scratch and that takes tiiiimmmeee. Finding something frozen and easy (that won’t break the sodium bank) is a god send. So this stuff rocks. Pour your serving over pasta (which is almost always sodium free),…

I have no excuse for not being here

I have lots of questions today. What has worked best for your meniere’s disease? Have any of you tried sweating as opposed to water pills? Are any of you musicians? Has a low sodium diet made you lose a lot of weight? Are you male/female and how old are you? I’m asking these to anyone…

Dizzied by Disney

  I have a problem. It’s an expensive one. I’m addicted to Disneyland and when I found out the hubby has Ménière’s Disease, I thought our Disney days were over. (Insert hysterical sobbing.) Imagine my surprise when he said he wanted to attend for the Halloween party last year! (Yeah, this post is over due.)…

The Spice of Life

Seriously, congrats! You make mastered the art of cooking everything low sodium when possible and you can feel your blood pressure drop just by looking at the beautiful food you have prepared. Good for you! One problem (and you’ll never admit this)- it’s lacking something. You know, that thing called flavor? As much as we…

More low salt yummy stuff

 I found this little bag of tasty treats at Trader Joes. 35 mg’s of sodium in 3 brownie crisps. A little of this goodness goes a long way. Sweet treats are something I usually bake a lot of. An unexpected side effect of low sodium is a big weight loss for the hubby. (I’m not…
