Your Day in Sodium
2. Morning Snack
You have a half cup of cottage cheese topped with fresh fruit to hold you over until lunchtime.
Your sodium: 410 mg
Lighten it: These curds may not taste salty, but a half cup delivers nearly 20 percent of the 2,300-mg limit and more than a quarter of the 1,500-mg cap. Look for "no salt added" cottage cheese and you’ll save 395 mg.
