Stroke Related Foods Part 3

When you read the labels on canned soups and other prepared foods you will find ingredients like baking soda, baking powder, MSG (monosodium glutamate), disodium phosphate and sodium alginate listed. They are actually nothing else, but fancy words for salt!

Salt, also referred to as sodium, presents a huge health risk and is the cause of many strokes and other health related problems, because it raises blood pressure. Recommended is a daily sodium intake of less than 2,300 mg for people under the age of 50 and 1,500 mg for those over 50.

You can buy the low-sodium varieties, but it is even better to make your own and be stingy with the salt. You can enhance the taste by adding herbs or a 'no-salt' substitute which can also be found in the stores.

I know that none of this sounds good and it almost makes you afraid to eat anything, but there are good options and solutions to the problem which may even turn out to not only be much healthier, but much tastier too.

Life doesn't come without problems and even though that doesn't sound good and almost makes us afraid to live life to its fullest, we can trust God. He always has the best solutions to them and will resolve them in His time!

Psalm 34:8
Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
