We already know it is best to lay off high salt foods like movie popcorn, French fries but there are other foods we need to be on the look out for that are loaded with sodium. Sodium has been known to raise high pressure, even in people who do not have high blood pressure. This indicates we need to cut back on salt.
Sodium is everywhere like:
In deli meats and hot dogs, cereals, vegetable juice, canned soup and vegetables, flavor packets, even in ketchup, frozen foods like pizza, spaghetti sauces, bread, rolls, flour tortillas, dairy products, like cheese and cottage cheese and salty seafood
Best to look for low sodium options or try to cook from scratch, which is time consuming, but important for diabetics.
