I am truly amazed at how much sodium is hidden in our foods, before we add the salt! Thanks for sharing this very informative article!

My biggest surprise when started reducing the salt was that my migraines were reduced by 99.9%

The email which I clicked through to this articles said canned peas were high in sodium. Hm. Never eat them--but I do eat fresh and frozen peas so I'm glad I avoided that pitfall. Many of the "high" sodium foods come in lower salt alternatives in my local grocery store. Right next to the HIGH salt version is "no salt added" or "low salt" version. Things like Peanut Butter do not need salt in them! Thankfully that option is easy at our local stores.

Purchased flour tortillas shocked me, now I make my own.

I try not to eat out due to sodium. I had a Wendy's Power Mediterranean salad the other day. 1220 mg. sodium. Are restaurants trying to kill us!?

I cook most of our meals. We add Himalayan salt to taste

I have learned not to add salt to my food. A salt substitute or some type of condiment like hot sauce helps.

My blood sodium level runs low so I do have to have some salt each day but most the time, it's not quite enough.

I have to add salt since I don't get enough of it. Very little processed foods.

We are eating low salt at home and then when we do eat out, some food tastes terrible salty.

I have no salt in my house, but I'm consuming too much salt according to my nutrition tracker, I'm going to start looking for the "hidden" salt.
