Do you have any idea about your daily sodium intake? If you are like me, I barely pay any attention to those numbers on the various foods you buy in the store!
Sunkist has a Sunkist Sodium Quiz on their Facebook page where you can find out where you fall on the sodium scale based on your daily food choices! You can range from Serial Salt Offender to Sodium Smarty. Invite your friends and compare results. Unfortunately, I was a Shake & Baker, lol!
Along with healthy tips, the Sunkist S’alternative offers tips on how to use Sunkist lemons as a healthy sodium-free alternative to salt... go figure! They will help you with ways to reduce your sodium intake, increase potassium and enhance the flavor of food by just using Sunkist lemons!They also offer a cool recipe...
