How much sodium is in no-salt-added diet if it includes purchased baked goods and processed foods?

1500 mg: 1500 mg is your daily budget. Your food can still taste great. Crank up the flavor by adding more spice to your dish.

No magic food or pill confers health (despite all the internet baloney), but an overall healthy diet will leave you lean & well-muscled. ...Read more
