Sodium is found in many of the foods we eat, so cautious eating choices are needed in all food groups to reduce sodium intake. According to the USDA’s 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines, the recommended sodium intake for adults and children ages 14 years and older is to limit intake to < 2,300 mg per day. This recommendation is said to be based on evidence showing a relationship between increased sodium intake and increased blood pressure in adults. In addition, the guidelines state there is some evidence that points towards an association between increased sodium intake and increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in adults. The guidelines also note that this evidence of an increased risk of CVD is not as conclusive as the evidence sodium has on blood pressure, which is an indicator of CVD risk.
With no sodium, adding avocados to some of your favorite meals is a great way to keep your diet flavorful while not adding to your sodium intake.
As mentioned, by reducing salt intake, you can lower the risk of CVD by lowering blood pressure. Lowering your sodium intake can be simpler than you think, but as always, make sure to consult a doctor before making changes to your diet.
Reducing sodium intake is often easier than people think it will be. Simply by cooking at home with fresh foods, you can greatly reduce your sodium intake. Avocados can be turned into spreads used in egg salad or tuna salad. They can also be spread over proteins like chicken or paired with beans.
It’s hard to believe that something that tastes so good is so healthy!
