February is American heart month. Every year, 1 in 4 deaths is caused by Heart disease, including stroke, making it the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. The good news? Heart disease can often be prevented when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions. There are a lot of ways help prevent heart disease including quitting smoking, exercise, maintaining healthy weight, getting regular health screenings, and avoiding salt. Avoiding salt may seem as easy as removing the salt shaker from the table, but salt is often hidden in a lot of the food we eat. Check the label on some of the following and you may be surprised by what you see! Bread, salad dressing & condiments, canned foods, deli meat, fresh packaged chicken, canned soups, cheese and those are just to name a few! Eliminating all sources of hidden salt probably isn’t possible, so try some of the following tips from www.heartbright.org.
When Shopping: Buy fresh, frozen, or no-salt added canned vegetables. Choose food packed in water instead of broth or salt. Buy fresh garlic or garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Choose foods labeled "low sodium," "sodium free," or "no salt added."
When Cooking: Slowly cut back on the amount of salt added when cooking until you don't use any. Add no salt to the water when cooking beans, rice, pasta, and vegetables. Cut back on meats high in sodium, such as bologna, ham, hotdogs, and sausage. Rinse all canned products to reduce the amount of sodium.
When Eating: Fill the salt shaker with a mixture of herbs and spices. Slowly cut back on the amount of salt added at the table until you don't use any.
