Your Day in Sodium
You start your day with a serving of bran flakes with raisins and skim milk.
Your sodium: 262 mg
Lighten it: Even healthy-sounding cereals can deliver a fair amount of sodium, and the milk adds 51 mg. If cold cereal is on the menu, go with shredded wheat. Not only does it have practically no sodium, it provides a bonus 180 mg of potassium per serving. Or go hot and make oatmeal. Rolled oats are also virtually sodium-free.
