Tags for special diets!

Hey Fam,

I just went back and added a "low sodium" tag to the recipes of mine that qualify. What other tags would be useful to folks? I'm thinking "gluten free" (which Mindi might already have done, but I'll go back and add to mine that are gf). What else?

Caveat: The labels will go on recipes that CAN be made low sodium or gluten free (or whatever else you guys suggest). If you are trying to cook for a special diet, choose wisely the specific ingredients you use for a "low sodium" or "gluten free" recipe. For instance, some mozzarella cheese has 1% or less of your RDA of sodium, but some other brands have up to 12%. Similarly, some peanut butter is gluten free, but other peanut butter is processed in a plant that also processes gluten, so choose wisely.

Also, if you're not sure how to add tags, it's easy. Just click the pencil at the bottom of a post you published. It will take you to a page that lets you edit the post. At the bottom of the page you will see "labels" and you can add a label to it there.

The low sodium label will be tremendously useful to me, so if you're still not sure how to add the tag, but you know a recipe can be made low sodium, gluten free, or something else, leave me a comment or send me an email and I will go in and tag it. ***Edit: Or maybe I can't, but maybe Dave can?***
