Three-quarters of our sodium intake comes from processed and prepared foods. By cooking your own meals, you're already on the best track to reducing the risks associated with a high-salt diet for you and your family. These flavorful dishes have less than 1/3 of your daily recommended value of sodium per serving.
Most of us add a pinch or two of salt when cooking. Try skipping this step -- remember that 1/4 teaspoon of salt contains 600mg of sodium, over 1/3 the recommended daily value. These chicken strips are a kids' classic, with no extra salt necessary.
Expanding the flavors you cook with is a great way to ease your family off a high-salt diet. The sweet sauce and zesty spices in this one-dish dinner provide a tasty alternative to a run-of-the-mill savory dish.
