  • Lori, according to my calc. there's actually more salt:
    2 tsp alt 4651
    celery 104
    carrots 88
    4 filets 236 for a total of 5079 / 4 servings =1269 mg.
    The other veggies also have minimal amts. of sodium. Think I'd put the veggies on top of the lemon, and use 1/4 tsp. salt in each packet. (580 m
