Sodium Soap box

Monday, October 07, 2013

Sorry, I am on a sodium soap box today. I just don't understand WHY restaurants add so much salt to their food. I know they want you to order drinks but usually they are free refills anyway so that doesn't really explain it either.
The salad I ate at Olive Garden was only 150 calories but it was nearly 800 mg in sodium !!!! I mean that is nearly half of my days allowance and all I had was a salad. I could have made the same salad at home for fewer calories and WAY LESS sodium mainly cause I use dressing very sparingly.
It is so dissappointing

    I agree - all of Olive Garden's food has too much sodium so we just don't go there any more.

    I hate this too. It is one of the main reasons why I avoid eating out.
