  • I USE LESS SALT & MORE HERBS.
  • Love is a friendship set to music.

  • Thanks for the chart
  • I've cut the salt called for in recipes by half for over 45 years and rarely use table, but love pepper. However, sometimes I just crave a salty snack and I indulge without guilt.
  • everything thats bad for you taste soo good.

    We limit our intake, but are not crazy over doing it, no salt at the dining table. But we dislike the taste of herbs and many spices, I don't care how supposedly "good" they are, they don't taste good to us at all. So worry about other things in life.

    Made the commitment to not use salt - two weeks now and keeping the faith.
  • I don't even have salt in my cupboard, I use lots of spices and herbs instead but even so, my sodium intake tends to be on the higher side. The main problem for me is processed food. I'm a vegetarian and I hate cooking, so I often prepare heat-amd-serve precooked stuff like soy burgers and similar things. Which are, I'm finding out, quite high in sodium. It's not a real health problem for me since I have low pressure, nevertheless it's one of the problems sabotaging my diet. Thanks for the article, definitely an eye -opener!
  • I use almost exclusively whole foods, never add salt to anything, and I go over my sodium intake at least six days a week.
  • I rarely go over in sodium because a doctor taught me 30 years ago how to control it. I have cooked with a lot of herbs for years. Recently I discovered the flavor of unsalted butter is actually better than salted. (My husband accidentally picked up a 4-pack of unsalted and two of my adult kids told me they use it most of the time because they like it.)
  • Sodium intake continues to be a challenge for me while dining out. The sodium in restaurant food is truly shocking! Food prepared at home is not the challenge. I am a label reader and have set many an item back on the shelf because of its sodium content. History of hypertension in the family. Something I need to watch.

    I am surprised that I am always over on my sodium levels. I DO use fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables.I did have a homemade soup today. Is the computer just judging that I automatically had so much sodium?
  • That list is a real eye opener and rather scary! What a bummer!
    I've been struggling with swelling in my feet for about a year. It's driving me crazy.
