Important: Read labels and

I usually try and buy the no salt or low salt Hunts tomatoes and Bush beans. Well yesterday I read the labels more closely and they have low salt, but High Potassium which a nutritionist said you need to watch too. I look at the cheaper store brands and they have salt that is less then the potassium and salt added together. So it is really important to check salt and the amount of fats in products you are using and also sugar levels.
I am going to try and buy fresh tomatoes and make my own from now on and buy dried beans so I can keep the sodium and fats down even more. I read labels before, but I am doing better at comparing products when reading label and watching the the hidden things in them.
Well have a great day. Vegetarian Times has a low fat pumpkin pie recipe.
