Beware Of Sodium Aka Salt!

 

I always believed and still do, that there is nothing in any ingredients as in “Salt”, the magic to perk up or mess up your favorite dish! The way salt can make your food taste better is just awesome! 

But did you know, as much as it adds taste to your food, salt also has ill effects packed with it? 

Researches and the modern health studies say that the average intake of salt per day has to be limited to less than one teaspoon. Now, that was alarming for me when I first read about it, but unfortunately, the truth has it all. 

What makes salt so bad for your health is the lurking Sodium. And worst of all, such traces of Sodium are present more in processed foods. As saying a complete no to those favorites like pickles, bacons, sausages, salami, salad dressings, cheese etc, limiting the intake is a better way to work it out. 

 

Using No Salt Substitutes Is A Good Idea! 

It’s always safe to pick processed packs that claim to be sodium-free, unsalted, low or even reduced sodium. 

Also, while cooking, replace the amount of salt used by tomatoes, tamarind etc, so that a little sacrifice on tasty food can gift you good health!
