Avoid prepared foods
Instead of either, there are simple meals you can prepare that contain less sodium, starch, and more nutrients.
You can quickly steam broccoli or peas over boiling water, then use the water to make pasta, add some low-fat parmesan cheese. Or combine shredded cooked chicken tenders baby spinach and pecans. Or tuna mayo celery for tuna salad. [spread on whole grain toast]. Or almond butter on apples.
