Limit Your Salt Intake!

The average human’s salt intake should only be ideally one teaspoon a day, but we all know that with the types of food the average person eats, the majority are ridiculously over their recommended sodium intake.

When choosing what to eat, go for 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 best! 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 more than the daily recommended amount.
