If you've been told that you have to go on a low-sodium diet, then it's time for some retail therapy -- of the culinary kind!

Follow Sodium Girl through the Whole Food Market aisles as she shows you all the flavors you can enjoy, even if you have to cut out salt. Leave knowing which products to stock up on in to create quick versions of:

  • Asian favorites--get a taste of soy, fish sauce, and curries without the sodium

  • A little taste of Italy--roasted tomatoes and creamy sauces American comforts--pizza, mac & cheese, and chicken wings

  • Taqueria take-out--forget the salt and load up on spice

Tour will conclude with a tasting of easy weeknight dishes made from low-sodium pantry essentials that you will (from now on) always have on hand!

  • Quick Chicken Curry

  • Lettuce Cups with Plum Sauce

  • Eggplant and Mushroom Ragu

Price: $20

Big Wave is a lighter bodied golden ale with a tropical hop aroma and flavor – a smooth, easy drinking refreshing ale. The use of caramel malt contributes to the golden hue of this beer and our special blend of hops provides bright quenching finish.

We will have meat and seafood vendors joining us, so mark you calendars...you don't wanna miss it!
