stroke, hypertension, kidney disease and heart disease.
When your heart is affected because of too much salt, that can also lead to high blood pressure and heart problems. This then leads to kidney problems and other issues such as developing prediabetes and or type 2 diabetes.
Helpful Tips To Use Next Time You’re in The Kitchen
Though you may think cooking should come naturally, that’s not how it works. When doing anything (even cooking) researching is a great tip for learning how to improve or even start to do something.
Next time, before you get into the kitchen to cook, do some research about which seasonings would go better with the type of meal you plan to make and how to reduce your salt intake.
Then start to implement what you discovered. If you’re going to use a seasoning blend, use fewer seasonings on top of that. Instead, only add black pepper or simply just use the seasoning blend by itself.
Try using olive oil instead when cooking. Olive oil is a healthier oil that doesn’t contain as many calories as others.
Lastly, stick with it. The taste may not be what you’re used to but once you get the hang of how to use less to gain more, you’ll be able to tweak recipes to your liking that taste great and are still healthy for you.
A healthy heart starts in the kitchen, so put on your apron and get to seasoning (the right way)!
