Many people are consuming too much salt in their diet, which can lead to long-term health effects. Luckily, there are many ways to cut back on salt intake without having to cut out your favorite foods. Try using spices instead of salt, look for "low sodium" options when buying packaged foods, and always taste your food before adding salt. When looking at nutrition labels, remember that the recommendation for sodium is less than 2.3 grams/day.
