Keeping a low-sodium diet can pay dividends

Let’s face it. Most people know that too much sodium, aka salt, isn’t good for them. But when it comes to cooking meals at home, some people still can’t resist adding a pinch (or more) of salt to their creations. After all, salt does make food taste, well, tasty. Thankfully, you can step away from the salt shaker and still create meals that are not only delicious, but nutritious as well. It’s been reported that most of the sodium in our diets comes from processed soups, fast foods or meats. So if you’re cooking at home with your own blend of spices, you’re already on the right track to cutting down your sodium intake.
