If this is not the best place for this blog, would someone please let me know who the right parties are that might consider a "fix" for the Nutritional Tracker?
I am sure that I am NOT the only person using SP who "owns" the "pleasures" (not) of High Blood Pressure. In my travels throughout SP, I have become a busy reader of the many, many wonderful recipes. In the brief couple of months I have been enjoying these travels, I have attempted several recipes and found most to be delicious.
Now, I only cook for one...but my freezer has become full of soups, baked beans, delicious salmon and other seafood, and meats, chicken and beef... Yes, I'm eating good and finally able to figure out the right nutrition for me daily.
It's terrific to be able to read the ingredients and calculate the values of them before deciding which recipes are "good" for me, or can be "adjusted" to be within acceptable limits of salt.
BUT, WHY ARE WE CALCULATING SUGARS, VITAMINS and MINERALS and then ADDING SO MUCH SALT TO OUR BODIES?? No one who has HBP purposely engages in a salt gorging, but this should be something that we are more aware. Could be made part of the itemized foods? Is there some way that Salt can be added to our Nutrition lists?
