Time to #BreakUpWithSalt!

Time to #BreakUpWithSalt!

Check out my latest essay, in partnership with the American Heart Association, to help you break up with salt!

Here’s an excerpt:

That’s right. It’s time to send salt its walking papers, to tell salt to pack its raggedy duffel bag and go.

Each year more and more people find themselves impacted by common heart conditions like heart disease and high blood pressure, and unsure of how they got there or what to do in order to undo it. If this is you, you’re not alone. It seems that all of us either know someone with high blood pressure, or have it ourselves.

And, when you think about it, it’s easy to see why. When research highlights that the bulk of of the sodium we consume comes from processed, prepackaged, and restaurant food, and the saltiest culprits are things you’re likely to find in every kitchen in America, it’s no wonder why so many struggle with these common conditions.

What many people miss about salt and how it impacts the heart, and what doctors sometimes fail to share, is that salt impacts blood pressure.

Luckily, there are things we can do in our everyday lives to help positively impact our heart health. Here are four quick and easy tips to help you kick that salt to the curb! [source]
