I must confess that I consume large quantities of salt. My Trekkie friends have often referred to me as 'The Salt Vampire' (early episode in the original series).

I am trying to cut the amount down, though. Morton's makes a half and half mix of salt with the fake potassium stuff. I'm trying it out to see if I can get used to salt alternatives. It also helps with my potassium intake, which is always low.

A few weeks ago I ended up at Jimmy John's and trying to be as healthy as possible in a place like that I asked for a lettuce wrap. I had different sandwich meats inside and more lettuce. I just ate half of it and went back to my office. Looking at the nutritional information to enter it in my log I almost fainted when I realize the amount of sodium : 3,254.66 grams.!!!!
I couldn't believe it. It seemed such a harmless and healthy choice!

You got it Velle....and boy, once I started watching it, I realized how much I used to take in in just one day.....phew.....I am so glad that at least now I see what I take in and if I have a bad day, I can take it really easy the next. It also points out what is the problem area so you can make a better choice....great idea......I'm on it....

One day at a time......in my red high heels, and my crown!

I am so done bein the fat girl...how bout you?

It's no longer a diet. I am calling it my live-it.

This Week's Challenge: Watch your sodium intake!

If you use SparkPeople's nutrition tracker, consider adding sodium as a nutrient to track (if you haven't already).

Less than 2300 mg sodium each day is ideal. That's about a teaspoon of salt. Look for salt-free and reduced-sodium versions of canned and frozen foods. Watch the labels on all packaged and processed foods!

Here's a great article on ways to reduce sodium intake:

Remember how to do a search on SparkPeople? (That was one of our previous challenges.) Try it out --- lots of other resources come up, including low-sodium recipes from SparkRecipes.com
