OUT & ABOUT
On a low sodium diet
meals and on the go.
What to eat when out and about on a low sodium diet is a problem
looking for a solution. The biggest hurdle is that the high
sodium level in bread eliminates pocket bread, rolls, sandwiches and
hamburgers. But things are looking up with some chains providing
healthy salads. If you are following the Australian dietary guidelines
you will be looking for foods that are defined as low sodium i.e. with
sodium at or below 120mg/100g.
Fish and chips without added salt is low in sodium but if you want to
be sure you could discard the batter.
A big bowl of fruit salad makes a good lunch when out shopping.
A steak with no sauce and a salad with no dressing should be obtainable
in any good restaurant.
