According to the health experts at Mayo Clinic, average, healthy adults should consume no more than 2,300-milligrams of sodium per day (1,500-milligrams if you have high blood pressure). That means that noshes like salted nuts and savory snack foods (i.e., chips) that obviously contain a whole bunch of salt are off the menu.
However, these eight foods are sneaky high-sodium sources that result in uncomfortable belly-bloating, water retention, and dangerous sodium levels…
Look at the sodium content on your favorite can of vegetable, chicken noodle or tomato soup and I dare you not to gasp! You’d expect a veggie-based soup to pack a ton of nutritious vitamins, but not almost 50-percent of your daily sodium limit.
I’m guilty of bringing canned soup to work for lunch, myself. However, now that I’m aware that it’s a sneaky harbinger of salt, I’ve started purchasing no-salt-added soups or making my own at home. Prepare your slow-cooker with a homemade soup and flavor with fresh herbs and just a tiny pinch of salt.
