04/16/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

Salt can creep into your diet through unexpected processed foods.  Look in the nutrition label of Aunt Jemima’s Original Pancake mix.  It has more salt than Wise Potato chips!

Another place to watch is when you’re buying chicken at the grocery.  Here you are trying to make a healthy choice and grocery stores offer products that may be injected with a “saline solution” to puff them up and extend their shelf life.  Check the label for “contains a solution water, salt and sodium phosphate”.  That means they inject the chicken breasts with salt water.  This translates into higher salt intake for you, even if you don’t sprinkle any salt for taste on top.  You’ve used part of your maximum daily sodium intake of 1490 grams per day and you may not have even been aware of it!  BUYER BEWARE!
