A NOTE ON SODIUM

So please pass the saltshaker . right on past you. Or at least limit the sprinkling! The unique flavors of food will make themselves known to you once they’re not overpowered by salt. Fast food and processed food are also high in sodiumchoosing fresh, home-cooked food can help you limit your salt.
