7 Low-Sodium Lunches Under 400 Calories

In This Article

Reducing your salt intake can help reduce high blood pressure, a risk factor for heart disease. The American Heart Association recommends no more than 2,300mg a day and cutting back toward an ideal limit of no more than 1,500mg a day for most adults. This can be a challenge, however, since salt enhances flavors and helps preserve foods, which is why it’s found in many deli meats and condiments. If you’re trying to adopt a lower-salt diet, try making these delicious lunches, which all contain 400mg of sodium or less per serving.
