Sodium is hidden everywhere! Even if you eat a ‘healthy’ meal, natural sodium is found in grains, poultry, cheeses and many other food items. Take away the salt shaker and taste your food before salting. Also, anything that is canned, drain and rinse the contents before continuing to cook with it. This will help eliminate up to about 40% of the added sodium used for canning purposes. In addition, choose ‘no salt added’ on any packaged product.
