How to Avoid Salt

Two easy steps to reduce your salt intake:

1. Know the hidden sources- lunch meats, Chinese noodles, instant oatmeal, tomato juice, most spagetti sauces, corn tortillas, and many cheeses. The point? Read the label.

2. Increase your intake of potassium-rich foods- fruits and veggies that are orange in color, bananas, artichokes, bok choy, potatoes with skins, spinach, and Swiss chard.

*** Switch to Real Sea Salt or Celtic Sea Salt.
