How to Eat LESS SALT

  1. 1. How toconsume“LESS SALT!” in your Diet:<br />The Gillman Problem Solvers bring you <br />LESS-SALT Solutions…<br />www.gillmanins.com <br />
  2. 2. Why? Because consuming TOO MUCH sodium is a problem for Americans!<br />Sodium is necessary in a healthy diet. It allows your body to function properly by helping you balance fluid retention and correctly transmit nerve impulses. It also influences muscle contraction and relaxation.<br />However, TOO MUCH sodium in your diet in linked with:<br />Developing stomach cancer<br />Adverse effects on kidney with underlying conditions<br />High Blood Pressure or Hypertension<br />impacting<br />65,000,000<br /> Americans!!<br />www.gillmanins.com <br />

  4. 4. We bring you tips to cut back the shake of your salt-shaker!<br />www.gillmanins.com <br />
  5. 5. Check the Labels!<br />Check the labels for sodium content before you start preparing food! The suggested intake of sodium is different for every person. Consult a health professional to find out “how much” is the right amount for you.<br />The RNI (recommended nutrient intake) for sodium is only 1.6 grams per day according to MedicalNewsToday.com.<br />www.gillmanins.com <br />
  6. 6. Buy the “low sodium” Groceries!<br />Check to see if your grocery items come in a “low sodium” version. It’s always a good rule-of-thumb to opt for the “low sodium” can of soup, bag of frozen vegetables or microwaveable meal. While most minute-meals are high in salt, this makes convenient eating possible, without sky-rocketing your sodium intake!<br />www.gillmanins.com <br />
  7. 7. Ban the Can... when you can.<br />If you have the option, chose FRESH over canned or frozen. This way, you’ll avoid added preservatives (and thus, added sodium)in order to get the most nutrition for your spoon or fork-full!<br />www.gillmanins.com <br />
  8. 8. Make it from Scratch!<br />Even though we live in a “TO-GO” world, it’s important to MAKE TIME to MAKE healthy meals that include fresh, organic ingredients as often as possible.<br />Maximize your time spent in the kitchen by freezing your leftovers! Freeze meal-sized portions that can easily be reheated when you need a minute-meal at work, home or on-the-go!<br />www.gillmanins.com <br />
  9. 9. Rinse before you eat!<br />Be sure to rinse your canned foods before eating. This will help you cut back on the excess sodium that lingers inthe tin containers. <br />www.gillmanins.com <br />
  10. 10. Pasta & Rice: No salt added!<br />It’s common to add a few extra dashes of salt to your boiling pasta or rice. After all, it’s what “grandma” always did. However, health experts suggest skipping this sodium-adding step all together.<br />www.gillmanins.com <br />
  11. 11. Beware of the Flavor-Packs<br />Toss those packages of “flavor” that come with your instant rice or noodles. Most of these packets contain a huge OVERDOSE of sodium that’s simply not good for your health. Instead, add your own herbs and salt-free spices to amp up the flavor. You can sacrifice the sodium without sacrificing great taste!<br />FLAVOR PACK<br />www.gillmanins.com <br />
  12. 12. Ditch those Salty-Salads!<br />You’re already eating a salad … so why reduce the healthy impact by topping it with a salty dressing? Top your leafy plate with oil and red wine vinegar or opt for a zesty sprinkle of lemon juice. You’ll save yourself the salt!<br />www.gillmanins.com <br />
  13. 13. Protein without a salty punch!<br />Be sure to choose fresh, lean cuts of chicken, red meat or fish over the processed, canned or cured alternatives. Also, season your lean meats with veggies like onions, mushrooms, peppers and other savory flavors that don’t kill your LESS-SALT objective! <br />www.gillmanins.com <br />
