My advice: Read The Salt Fix by Dr. James DiNicolantonio and stop eating processed foods. Cook for yourself as much as possible using whole foods.
I we consume 4000 MG of salt, what happens to the 1700 MG of salt over the 2300 recommended?
What about to buy whole food and cook from scratch? I have a farmer market at several miles so
-a salad is great with only lemon and olive oil, not need salt.
-do the dough for pizza at home (here I add some salt). Blend some tomatoes with basil and this is perfect ketchup without any salt. Use mozzarella, has little salt and some slices of zuchinni – best pizza in the town.
-buy a whole chicken, organic, when friends are comming. Seasoning with vegetables and cook slow and eat with salads.
-cook the soups. Is cheap and easy dinner. Not to mention healthy: boil 2 potatoes, 1 zuchinni and a half of kilo of mushroom, 30min and blender. Add a spoon of olive oil on your dish, ground a little salt and a little pepper.
-Boil pasta. Separately do a fast tomatoes sauce: 6-7 fresh tomatoes, blend with basil + parsley. On fire in a pan add 2 spoons of oil (I do with water), 1 small onion chopped, 2-3 garlic cloves little chopped, in 2-3 minutes add the tomatoes blended, reduce the temp. when is boiling and cook for 8-9min and mix well. Add a little salt.
(yep, I have an Italian colleague in my office and we speak about food up to 9 hours per day 😀 )
