We’ve discussed cutting your sugar intake on our previous post, so it’s only right we discuss the same for salt. Salt intake should only be ideally one teaspoon a day, but with the types of food the average person eats, the majority are horrifically over their recommended sodium intake.

When selecting foods to eat, choose fruit and vegetables as much as possible as they are low in sodium content. This is the same for canned and frozen fruits/vegetables also.

Try and eat fresh meats over packaged meats. Packaged meats contain more sodium, and of course… Fresh is always better!

If you are worried about your salt intake, check food labels when doing your weekly shop. Manufacturers are legally required to let you know exactly how much of what, you are consuming. Anything labelled in red means it contains over the daily recommended amount.
