Recipes, advice, cries for help, and the general ups and downs of trying to eat whole, local foods. (I use a lot of parenthetical phrases when I write.)
Thanks, Eileen. I don't think the article is clear enough about where your excess salt comes from - it's not the salt shaker. You typically get less than 10% there. It's in the foods that you buy in a box or a can or even a bag. And it's not just salty stuff. Read the bread label, or muffin label if you can get it, or the label on your Cheerios - you'll be shocked. I was disappointed that the USDA didn't lower the sodium recommendation in the new Dietary Guidelines even more. We should all strive for less than 1500 mg a day but we won't be able to do it without food manufacturers' help - let's start asking them to change!
