There’s the obvious salt sources, like crackers, chips, and pretzels, but there are also lots of foods swimming in bloat-causing sodium. On average people should consume less than 2300mg of sodium per day, so to keep you on track here are 13 sneaky sources of sodium:
- Sauces – marinades, barbecue sauce, and dressings are shockingly salty, so not only will a homemade sauce taste better, but it’ll cut down on excessive sodium intake.
- Cottage cheese – a good source of calcium and protein, but 40% of your sodium intake in just 1 cup. Substitute for greek yogurt, or look for “no salt added” cottage cheese
- Cereal – this obviously isn’t true of ALL cereals, (after having a mini worry session and making sure my fav granola cereal has only 2% of my daily sodium) but it’s definitely something to keep in mind – especially when there are so many other great breakfast options like oatmeal, eggs, greek yogurt, and fruit.
