How often do you use them in your meals?

Flavored rices and pastas?
Boxed potatoes?

We often do as a side item. I don't have an issue with salt, and so to be honest, I never really noticed the amount of sodium in them.

We use only fresh or frozen veggies, never canned, and if we cook them, we add a little butter while cooking instead of at the end.

I'm a coupon shopper so I will get the rice or potato packages when I can basically get them for free.  I keep them on hand for when I need a quick side dish.  We use Kraft mac and cheese pretty often.

Flavored rice and pasta maybe once or twice a year if they come on sale.
Boxed potatoes never.

I actually just bought a box of waffle mix for the weekend.  It was on sale for $1 and it took me about 5 minutes of contemplating before I actually decided to get it. lol  I'm still not 100% sure I'm going to use it. lol

I don't use boxed potatoes or rices, but about once a week (not every week) we have a Hamburger Helper night. I do try to make most things from scratch.

Flavored rice, here and there, but other wise not too often.

Very seldom. I prefer homemade and fresh foods.

I buy pasta, and sometimes potatoes.. I'm weeding out most boxed and cans. My grandma tried to give some frozen Chinese food... it had over 1000 mg of sodium.. i couldn't take it... Just reading the label was making me swell up lol...

 Pasta- yes only because I'm incredibly lazy to make my own...  Boxed potatoes?  Gross.
