salt sodium sodium sense

Sodium is found in salt. We need sodium to stay healthy but too much sodium can lead to high blood pressure. The recommended daily sodium intake for an adult if 1500mg (about 2/3 teaspoonful). How can we watch the amount of sodium we eat? Check the nutrition facts label on food containers and packages. Less than or equal to 5% daily value is little. 15% of sodium is a lot.

Sodium (salt) can be a hidden surprise in many foods:

  • Bread and rolls
  • Cold cuts and cured meat
  • Pizza
  • Poultry
  • Soup
  • Processed cheese
  • Breakfast cereals
  • Spaghetti sauce, condiments, salad dressing (jarred)

Cut down on salt to stay healthy! Some tips for you:

When eating out, ask for sauces and salad dressings on the side. Use small amount.

At home, eat less ready-to-eat or take-out food. Taste your food first before adding salt. Use spices for cooking as salt substitution.

PureNourish Natural protein shake is a healthy choice as breakfast or lunch. It only contains 220mg sodium per serving (a full meal).

Happy and healthy eating!
