Salt in Restaurant Foods
To watch your salt intake when dining out, follow this advice:
- Avoid fast-food and Asian restaurants; both are likely to serve foods with a high salt content.
- Stay away from soups, sauces, and salad dressings. Ask for oil and vinegar to dress your salad or lemon to squeeze on your fish or vegetables.
- Ask your server if they have a no-salt menu or if food can be prepared without salt.
Many chain restaurants provide nutritional information when asked. They also often post this information on their website.
