You already know that foods such as soy sauce and French fries are loaded with sodium.  It’s those sneaky sources that have added salt in them that we really have to look out for.

 

1. Cottage Cheese

A lunchtime favorite is cottage cheese and fruit.  It is packed with calcium and protein.  However, if you are trying to lower your sodium intake, then you may want to skip it, since cottage cheese has 400 mg of sodium for every half cup at least.  Try Greek yogurt as a delicious substitute.  You will get more vitamin D, calcium, protein, and as an added bonus probiotics, which are good for your gut.  A majority of Greek yogurts only have 70 mg of sodium in a half a cup.  If you are looking for a high-protein healthy breakfast to start eating, then opt for Greek yogurt.
