Sneaky ways salt creeps into your diet
Did you ever wonder how much salt is tucked away in our everyday meals without us even noticing?
Despite being essential for our body’s function, too much salt can lead to health concerns and it turns out we might be consuming more than we think!
I’ve stumbled upon a striking infographic from the American Heart Association that casts the spotlight on the stealthy ways salt creeps into our breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Astonishingly, you can easily consume nearly 4,000 mg of sodium with your typical diet – almost double the recommended daily intake.
But worry not, this eye-opening infographic doesn’t just highlight the issue; it offers delectable, low-sodium alternatives that don’t compromise on taste. This would definitely make you rethink your next meal!
It’s not just about what we add at the table; it’s also about the choices we make throughout the day.
Would you believe that a simple switch from a honey bun to a banana for a snack can cut out almost 280 mg of sodium?
