What People Are Saying about Low Salt Kitchen

"With Mckenzie’s recipes and guidelines I know it’s possible!"

“I was struggling! We were new to eating a low salt diet after my husband's quadruple by-pass surgery. I was anxious to create our new normal diet, but with Mckenzie’s recipes and guidelines I know it’s possible! I am so glad I found your website and Instagram, thank you!!!"


"Totally changed the way I cook!"

"As a life-long salt lover, it never occurred to me that I could enjoy all of my favorite foods without salt. Low Salt Kitchen totally changed the way I cook! I'm much more conscious of what I put in my food and how I shop at the store. And best part, my family hasn't even noticed the difference in my cooking!"
