Nutrition Challenge

You are the salt of the earth—so stop eating so much of it!! This week’s challenge is all about sodium. We are going to try to keep our sodium level down this week. So give yourself 2 points for every traditional meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner) you eat where you don’t reach for the salt shaker. So, the potential is 6 total points per day.

Now if you’re starting to feel a bit deprived, then try these low sodium or salt free alternatives.
