    IS SALT EQUATED TO FLAVOR IN THE FOODS WE EAT? ARE WE ADDICTED TO SALT? IS SALT KILLING US? 

    Many of us consume well over the daily-recommended amount of sodium, or salt, according to the American Dietetic Association. Over time, this can cause high blood pressure that leads to heart disease, stroke and kidney disease.  It is important to understand how many milligrams of salt you should consume each day and how you can manage your sodium intake.  [Did I just hear you say how much IS a milligram?] This information has it’s own shroud of mystery because we know what a cup is or a tablespoon, but milligrams? 23000 mg’s? Even my baker’s scale doesn’t register mg’s.

    Born with sweet and bitter taste buds, salt taste buds are developed at 5 months. There are foods that are naturally rich in a sodium and some include it’s balance: potassium, and a balanced diet is always the goal. Maybe the salt craving is because we aren’t eating enough foods naturally rich in sodium. It’s really best to get all of our nutritional needs from food. When we eat a well balanced diet we feel both satisfied, energized and light.
