Pass on the Salt for PCOS Health Part 2

It’s essential to cut back on your salt intake to below 2300 mgs. a day, which is the equivalent of a teaspoon of table salt. Too much salt can raise blood pressure, a classic symptom of heart disease which is closely linked to PCOS.
 
The simplest way to reduce salt intake is to stop cooking with salt. You may be surprised at just how much flavor you can add to a meal. Depending on the type of meal you’re making, try ditching salt for pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, basil, oregano, celery seed, sage and dill.
 
Lemon juice and apple cider vinegar add a tasty kick to vegetables. And nutritional yeast adds a savory flavoring to sauces and stews.

Remove the salt shaker from the table. Replace it with a seasoning of your own, such as a combo of garlic powder, onion powder and lemon pepper.
 
Read labels carefully when shopping at the grocery store. Compare brands for each item and choose the one with the lowest sodium content. Whenever possible, choose sodium-free varieties, especially in canned goods. If all you can find are regular canned goods, rinse the vegetables or fruit in water to remove as much excess salt as possible.
 
Skip the saltiest of foods, such as canned meats and fish, ham, bacon and sausage, salted nuts and peanut butter, chips, olives, cheese and pickles.
 
Choose fresh over prepared and packaged meals, which is where the majority of our salt intake comes from. Instead, buy foods as fresh as possible and make your meals from scratch.
 
Avoid salty condiments, like soy sauce, steak sauce, tamari and Worcestershire sauce.
 
Make your own salad dressing. You can find recipes online or experiment with your own. Try a combo of  virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar, dill, garlic and pepper.
 
Stay away from fast food. It is sky-high in salt content (not to mention fat).
