Step 3: Pick Foods Naturally Low in SodiumTo accomplish this step, try the following tips:
- Choose fresh foods.
Fresh fruits and vegetables including freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices have very little sodium. The same is true for fresh meat, poultry and fish.
Generally, you can eat as much fresh food as you want without counting the sodium content. So, think fresh when choosing foods.
- If you are not eating fresh foods, choose other low-sodium foods as much as possible.
Other good options include canned fruits and plain frozen vegetables.
Dried beans, peas, rice, and lentils are also excellent low-sodium foods, but make sure not to add salt or other ingredients such as salt pork when cooking them.
