I have high blood pressure and must really monitor my sodium. I find it particularly difficult to control my sodium intake. I am trying to get rid of processed foods, but I drink almond milk (30 calories a cup) and it has 150 mg of sodium per glass.

The journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Let go and let God.

Sodium is a tough one; it's everywhere and in almost everything.

It is so true that processed stuff is very salty tasting. There are products that seriously taste like nothing but salt. I can't stand ham any more for that reason (didnt like it all that much before).

For the past several days I have managed to only consume about 1000 mg of sodium each day. I have been monitoring my salt intake for almost a year and have found it extremely difficult to stay below the recommended 2,300 mg of sodium.

I think the trick is that I prepare almost all of my foods myself and use only no-sodium or low-sodium ingredients. Even my husband has started to notice that he can't eat a lot of processed foods anymore because they just taste too salty. emoticon
