Healthy Tidbit: Eating Right with Less Salt

Most Americans are getting too much sodium from the foods they eat. Here are ways you can eat right with less salt: Focus on fresh foods, eat processed and prepared foods less often, cook more often at home, read food labels, use caution with condiments, and allow your taste buds to adjust to less salt.

Power Up with Breakfast

Breakfast gives you energy to start the day. A healthy breakfast is important for everyone. Get the morning nutrition you need with these quick breakfast ideas: Make instant oatmeal with low‐fat milk instead of water. Toss in raisins or dried cranberries and chopped walnuts. Layer low-fat plain yogurt with your favorite crunchy cereal and blueberries. Spread a flour tortilla with peanut butter, add a whole banana and roll it up. Top a toaster waffle with low-fat yogurt and peach slices.
