Eat Smaller Portions
Restaurant portions can be twice the size of a regular portion.
Ask for half your meal to be packed up to take home. Smaller portions will reduce the amount of sodium you’re eating.
Bring Your Own Condiments
Condiments can be high in sodium, though you can find reduced or no salt added versions in grocery stores.
Buy small bottles or fill small plastic containers with your favorite low sodium or no salt added condiments and bring them with you when you eat out.
Don’t Be a Frequent Fryer
Fried foods are notoriously high in sodium in large part due to the amount of salt added to the breading.
Choose menu items that are roasted, steamed, grilled, baked or broiled for a healthier option.
