Who doesn’t like a good deli sandwich and side salad for lunch? But these foods, too, can contain a sneaky serving of salt. Two slices of ham equals 739 mg of sodium. Ask for one cup of mac-n-cheese too and you’ve added another 1,061 mg to your luncheon salt lick. Even seafood sandwich fillers like a cup of tuna salad can contain up to 824 mg of salt.
If you indulge in these items during lunch, make sure you take it easy at dinner. Try three ounces of fresh orange roughy, which contains only 59 mg of salt, and one cup of unsalted fresh green beans (just 1 mg of salt).
