Sodium

So this stuff is everywhere it seems. I watch it now, well look to see how much is in the food I eat and I am SHOCKED! I think it would be harder to be on a low sodium diet than on a low fat diet, seriously. I live on WW meals for lunch... those are high, so last week I thought hmm I'll just have a nice big salad, with feta, I love feta. I put 3 servings on as it was really the only thing counting on my salad...well at over 500mg of sodium PER SERVING I ate over 1500mg of sodium on my salad, just about double a WW meal. Geesh.
Really the only way to say away from this stuff is to eat clean. No processed foods ect, just foods in their natural state. But that's rarely possible in my household. I'm all about fast and convience. But I also know my body defiantly reacts to sodium... what's a girl to do?

Anyways that is my sodium vent....
