Caring for a sick relative, recently released from the hospital, in my home. He is on both a low-sodium and a low-potassium diet. Please help me with meal planning before I go crazy!

All of the supposedly healthy foods that I love and serve my family often are suddenly a deathtrap. All kinds of fruits and vegetables -- from cantaloupe and oranges and bananas to avocados and spinach and asparagus and tomatoes and carrots -- are high in potassium. I read that onions and garlic are good, low-potassium foods -- but what the heck can I put them on? Googling tells me differing results w/r/t other specific foods as I search for them individually. So far I have been serving a lot of eggs and fish (nervously). Bonus points for a pescetarian-friendly lifestyle, since that's what I am... and thank you in advance!
