· We get more than enough salt in our diets without adding salt. Lose the salt shaker!
· Your dietary intake of salt should equal about one teaspoon of table salt a day, which you’ll obtain without thinking about it or ever adding additional salt.
· Think you’re a good cook? Prove it. Lose the salt, both when cooking and on the table. Use spices, herbs and oils instead.
· Rethink all those condiments. Soy sauce, ketchup, pickles, olives, salad dressing and seasoning packets are typically very high in sodium. Seek out low-fat, low sodium alternatives, or sprinkle enough of the condiments to produce the taste you want instead of using the entire packet.
