24. I used to make "Tomato l'Orange Soup" from scratch and it is the BEST soup I've ever had.

.
.
.
Long before my "low-sodium-requiring" days -- but not a pinch o' salt in the whole stockpot.
.
.
.
Some frozen condensed OJ, though.
.
.
.
I have (sob-sob-SOB) lost the recipe and none of the ones I've found online seem like they would approach
anywhere near its scrump-diddly-umptiousness.
.
.
.
There ARE no-salt and low-salt canned tomatoes (Del Monte, I think, even has a Diced Tomato with Basil
& Oregano with only 20 mg/serving), though it probably WOULDN'T be as good as from scratch. And I've
found a "decent" sodium-free powdered "chicken" broth -- I can't remember the brand name, but it's a
recognizable one. Look where they have beef and chicken boullion cubes and powders.
.
.
.
I read that some major health professional in the past (maybe even a Surgeon General) said that he
thought Campbell's Tomato Soup was a scourge upon our society (due to it's getting kids used to that
Mom's "home-cooked" comfort food level of uber-saltiness).
.
.
.
(on edit) BTW, MFMM didn't use much salt in her cooking and we didn't have salt shakers on the table
(though nearby for corn-on-the-cob and such), so that was not a problem. However, we get what could
conceivably be called TOXIC levels of sodium in our prepared foods. I used to get TWO salt bagels from
Bruegger's a coupla times a week. I think about 2400 mg of sodium apiece -- so I was eating 2-1/2 DAYS
worth of recommended sodium just on those mornings.
