AHA's Lower-Sodium Recipes Make Cooking at Home Easy

AHA's Lower-Sodium Recipes Make Cooking at Home Easy

The following guest post was written by Deborah Renza, managing editor for the American Heart Association’s bestselling library of cookbooks and heart-health information books.

Our online recipe hub makes cooking at home (with less salt) delicious, simple, affordable, and quick.

Why is cook a four-letter word to so many of us? We know that one of the best ways to eat healthy is to cook our own meals. By eating at home, we can better control our portions as well as how much sodium, saturated fat, and added sugar we consume.

CSPI’s Infographics Show Food Companies Hold Salt Shaker

CSPI’s Infographics Show Food Companies Hold Salt Shaker

 This guest blog post was written by Jim O’Hara and Abby Dilk of CSPI.

Consumers are now more mindful than ever of what’s on their plate. They might consult the readily available nutritional information on restaurant websites or the “lighter fare” sections on menus to identify lower calorie options. However, consumers go without choice when it comes to their sodium intake given that about three-quarters of sodium that Americans eat is already in the processed and restaurant foods they purchase, further ensuring that nine out of ten adults consume more than the Dietary Guidelines for Americans’ recommended daily sodium limit of 2,300 milligram (mg).

Add Color this Nutrition Month

Add Color this Nutrition Month

As a physician for over three decades, I’ve treated diseases that take years from our lives and life from our years. And the sobering fact is, many of these diseases could be prevented, better treated and even reversed if more people would make simple lifestyle changes that we know can work as well or better than prescribed drugs or other treatments.

Even Healthy Food Can Have More Sodium than You Think

Even Healthy Food Can Have More Sodium than You Think

You try and make healthy choices for your family, but it’s hard to stop what you can’t see. The food industry adds salt and sodium to foods before it even reaches your dinner table. About three-quarters of our daily sodium intake in America comes from salt added to foods during processing.
