For some reason, I like to type rather than tap. Are you weird like me?
This morning, I was using the MyFitnessPal.com website to enter my food diary entries. When I was done, I did a quick scan to the bottom and noticed that even before dinnertime, my Sodium budget for the day was already spent.
So, I glanced up that column and had a revelation. The greatest source of Sodium in my diet is coming from packaged foods, like low fat cottage cheese (especially this one! WOW!), pre-packaged roasted chicken slices, flat-out bread, Miracle Whip, etc. In every case, the stuff that is not fresh fruits or veggies is loaded with it. I had heard that and knew that to be the case, but it literally jumped off the page at me on this screen! This was eye opening!
