EXTENSION NEWS: Reduce salt to improve health


• Go unsalted. Choose snacks, nuts and seeds that are low sodium or have no salt. For an even better snack have some raw vegetables with low-fat ranch or onion dip with low fat yogurt or sour cream.

• Educate yourself on condiments and their sodium content. Many condiments are high in sodium and can add to your sodium intake. Choose sodium reduced or no-salt ketchup, salad dressings, seasoning packets, and soy sauce. Make your own salad dressings by using oil and vinegar and adding some herbs.

• Speak up at restaurants. Ask for your meals to be prepared without salt and request that sauces and salad dressing be served on the side.
