Your Day in Sodium (Page 2)

1. Breakfast

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.
