May is National Blood Pressure Education Month.

Here are 4 things you can do each week of May to learn to eat less sodium.

1. Can the canned sodium - start watching the sodium content on all canned goods. Look for items that are low-no sodium. They contain 5% or less for the daily value for sodium or they say, “no salt added”.

2. Read the label on frozen meals and avoid the ones which contain more than 5% of the daily value for sodium. This will leave you with mostly frozen veggies.

3. Start watching the bread and grain items that you bring home and use the 5% rule.

4. Last but not least, skip the deli and processed meat and cheese. These items are high in sodium and saturated fat.
