Trying to cut back on sodium but not the taste? It’s possible! Over the next few weeks, I’ll be featuring lower sodium recipe options. According to the Center for Disease control, more than 348,000 American deaths in 2009 included high blood pressure as a primary or contributing cause. However, about 1 in 5 (20.4%) U.S. adults with high blood pressure don’t know that they have it. I’ve witnessed this first hand when hosting health fairs or working with clients. Many people are just unaware. Know your numbers! In addition, children’s blood pressure should be screened annually starting at the age of 3, with the age appropriate cuff size.
Here’s a tasty, healthy and low-sodium breakfast to start your day.
