When it comes to preparing food at home, it is ideal to avoid the salt shaker altogether. Look for recipes that utilize herbs and spices for flavor. If a recipe calls for a seasoning with salt, look in the spice aisle for a salt free substitute (the grocery store is filled with options). Always choose “no salt added” canned goods, and low sodium broth. And, remember that salt is present in most convenience foods, so the best way to lower intake is by cooking at home and cooking from scratch.
