Salt…Don’t add it!

Posted on January 13, 2011

Typically, foods high in salt are processed foods or fast foods like pizza, hamburgers, french fries, potato chips, mexican food, chinese food, and others that require alot of seasoning.  Families who eat alot of processed and convenience foods are consuming way more sodium than they actually need.  Foods that are typically low in sodium are fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables, unprocessed meats, and foods marked “low sodium”.

A simple guideline is that if a food contains more than 300 mg of sodium per serving, is should be avoided.

Most fast food establishments will provide nutritional information.  This is helpful for when you have to eat at a restaurant.

Most people do not realize how much sodium is going into their diet until they start trying to reduce the amounts.  To help regulate your sodium balance you can increase your water intake throughout the day – at least 1/2 gallon.

Don’t add salt to food since most foods contain sodium anyway.  Eat healthy!
