Most Americans are getting way more than the recommend amount (not to mention some restaurant dishes can have 2000mg+ sodium in them).

Instead of adding salt to foods in cooking or at the dinner table, try using herbs and spices instead! Watch my Fox Carolina segment below for more tips, and click here to get the Go Red for Women Herbed Veggie Skillet recipe that I demonstrated on the show!
