    I like the fact that it’s super healthy but it was really hard to eat for me. Do you recommend any low sodium sauce to use with it?

    • I don’t have a specific recommendation for you as I don’t use soy sauce. I know some people use coconut liquid aminos instead because it has a lower sodium content, but it’s not a lot lower. A better alternative might be to make one yourself. It is not yet available on this website, but you can easily find recipes online to make a low sodium soy sauce yourself. It’s pretty easy. Typically, these recipes involve diluting a store-bought soy sauce with unsalted ingredients to make it lower in sodium without losing too much flavor.
