Demon Salt!

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

It is really hard to watch Your salt when You are not doing the cooking. We eat out most of the time. With just the 2 of Us and My DH being such a picky eater it is hard to cook for Us! But even if You do not add salt at the table all foods have salt and the people preparing it add salt. I was over again yesterday. Not by much but over. I hope My choices are better today!
I am watching the warehouseman move a large limb off the cottonwood tree out front at the office. We had some wind last night. This is why You never park under a cottonwood tree!!
I hope Everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!! Love Y'all!! ((HUGS))

    I was on a low sodium diet for my blood pressure which is normal now as is my weight. I still watch it. I guess I got used to it...yep...it isn't easy!

    It is hard to watch your sodium when eating out alot. And even if you eat packaged foods from the grocery store. I think this is a struggle for many of us.

    I guess the best way to beat the salt monster is to eat raw or fresh, like salads, fruits & veggies. Remember to order your salad dressing on the side, too. You can do this, my friend. Maybe not drastically, but you can pare it down a mite! Keep trying.
    Cottonwood, notwithstanding, it's not always wise to part under any tree! hehe If nothing else, you risk getting sap or birdie poo on your car!!! But I know watching them take off a limb is fascinating!
    Hope you are having a super great day!!! (((HUGS)))

    It is very difficult to stay under the salt limit if you eat any processed foods or if you eat out. This week I have been trying to stick to mostly lean meat and fresh fruits and veggies. Even my whole grains tend to have more sodium than I need. I am missing my triscuits!

    In my house we never ever use salt I don't even own a salt shaker hahahaha but I know a lot come with salt like ham and I'm portuguese so chourico. So as much as I love chourico I've said bye , bye , bye cause I have high blood pressure.
    I mean HIGH, they said stop using salt, I said I don't even own a salt shaker hahaha
    it's really difficult when you eat out a lot to know what they are putting in the food as salt content, be careful it's better to eat at home that way you can control it, my hubby is one of those picky eaters too (don't like lettuce, peppers, onions, only eats corn , potato or green beans drives me nuts!!!!!)
    Good luck with your choices today!

    Keeping tabs on ANYthing you are trying to limit can be a real challenge. I'm so glad we don't have to worry about salt here; we're on a prescribed restricted-carb diet, and we actually *have to* have more salt than is typically recommended. I love salt! We use the Himalayan pink... it's yummy.

    But you're right: the amounts of salt in meals prepared outside the home (and even packaged meals in the home) are simply outrageous.

    Good luck!

    Oh I know that feeling so well!!! My husband does know I don't salt everything so he uses the salt shaker a lot. Way too much, in fact. Keep up the good work-each day has to get easier, right? Okay, probably not but keep on trying!

    I was a VERY picky eater as well as a child. Be careful and aware about side effects from not getting enough nutrition as a kid, because I developed ADD from not getting enough nutrition.

    I'm not trying to tell you what to do or how to parent so I'm sorry if I came across that way. I just want you to be aware :)
