Is there anything worse? Yeah, I'm a little pudgy in some places and in other spaces I'm built like a brick sh*t house. (Whatever that means?) I have a tendency to swell in all the wrong places and don't drink enough water.
I don't think I use that much salt anyway. It's not like I carry a salt shaker around in my purse or I've got one of those salt blocks out in the back yard. I don't have Mortons on speed dial.
The doctor told me that I should avoid anything that has added sodium on the label.
Have you checked a label for the sodium content lately? Everything has salt in it, including the Diet Coke that I love to drink.
The doctor told me I should go au naturale and eat foods that are uncooked and unpreserved. Eat lots of vegetables like onions, kale, spinach and cabbage. Cauliflower, broccoli and rutabagas are also natural foods that are good for you. I told the guy that I didn't like any of those vegetables but I really liked potatoes.
They are a good source of fiber but the best way to eat them without adding any salt would be to eat them steamed advised my doctor.
So, that's my new food staple! Steamed potatoes! Not mashed with garlic and butter. Not baked with butter and sour cream. Not loaded. Not fried. Not boiled and browned. Not mashed with brown gravy. Not au gratin. Not scalloped.
Plain, steamed potatoes and no Diet Coke!
