Tips on Cutting Salt From Your Diet


Many people don't realize how much sodium is in their favorite prepackaged meals. One great way to cut down on your salt intake is to make your meals from scratch.

Since this is not always an option, another choice you can make to reduce your sodium intake is to buy prepackaged foods that are sodium free or low sodium.

When preparing a high sodium meal you can also make smart swaps to reduce the amount of sodium without sacrificing taste. To do this make sure to check ingredients for all forms of sodium, and if there is a lot maybe don't add any extra table salt.

One of the easiest ways to reduce the amount of sodium in your diet is by eating more fruits and vegetables. Fresh produce has almost no sodium. If you do use frozen vegetables make sure to check the labels to see if salt has been added before you add your own.
