Helpful hints

  • Reduced-sodium broth usually contains between 480 mg to 600 mg sodium per cup.
  • One medium onion yields 1/2-cup diced.
  • Count one serving as 4 ounces liquid, if you are limiting fluids.
  • Rice milk or almond milk can be used instead of 1% low fat milk. Compare labels and look for the lowest potassium and phosphorus content.
