In brief: 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. Example: if you're cooking with garlic, add more garlic than the recipe calls for.

In brief: Read the labels

All processed and prepared foods will have a label or store statistics listing nutitional values.
These will include grams of sodium.
