SAVE ON SALT
While sodium guidelines have become controversial lately if you have high blood pressure or are at an increased risk for heart disease, you should cut back. Aim for no more than 1,500 mg of sodium per day, says Dr. Klodas. It can be really difficult to do, but cooking more fresh foods at home will go a long way in reducing your intake. After all, 70 percent of the sodium in the average person’s diet comes from packaged or restaurant food.
