Look Out, High Sodium Alert!

  • Bread and rolls: One piece of bread can have more than 230 milligrams of sodium, which accounts for 15% of the recommended daily amount.
  • Cold cuts and cured meats:  can hold up to 1,050 milligrams of sodium, and it is added to most cooked meats to keep them from spoiling.
  • Pizza: around 760 milligrams per slice
  • Poultry: The best option is to stick with grilled, lean, skinless chicken
  • Soup: can contain up to 940 milligrams per serving
  • Sandwiches: could have as much as 1,500 milligrams of sodium depending on what you have on it

*Too much sodium can result in puffiness of the face, eye bags, and swelling of the fingers.
