    Sodium sucks. :\

    It's damn hard to keep down. I do the big-lunch-small-dinner thing because I go to the gym at night and don't like to eat big before/after.

    Today I've eaten:

    Breakfast: Tea and a granola bar.
    Lunch: 2 tuna on wheat w/baby spinach and hummus, and a bowl of organic chili.

    Look at my sodium already:

    One slice of wheat bread has 170mg, and there are 500mg in a can of tuna. So just for lunch I'm over 1800mg. Granted 680 was in the chili which I don't usually have, but still - 1200mg in two sandwiches, discounting everything you may have for dinner, is a damn lot.

    It's hard to find stuff that's low sodium, apparently.

    Seafood has a lot more sodium in it than I expected. I had shrimp last night and the quantity was pretty high. I'll have to work on my love of seafood a bit

    What did you expect of creatures that grow up in salt water?

    You're telling me Chris. My Mom has a condition called Meniere's Disease, which is an imbalance of the fluid in the inner ear. She has to be on basically a NO salt diet, otherwise it can cause vertigo, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.

    We eat so much low/non-sodium food, that as soon as anyone in my family eats something salty, we instantly know.
