2. Vegetables

Vegetables are also naturally low in sodium, although some vegetables contain a significant amount more than others. One cucumber, for example, contains one milligram of sodium. One cup of beets, on the other hand, contains 84 milligrams of sodium. Half a cup of cooked spinach contains 63 milligrams of sodium. These numbers may seem high compared to the one milligram found in a cucumber, but in reality, they are very low in sodium considering the 2,000-milligram daily allowance. "Sodium free" vegetables include asparagus, cucumber, corn, green beans, avocado, potatoes, and summer squash.
