(HealthDay News) -- Too much salt can boost your blood pressure and spur related complications such as heart failure.
The Cleveland Clinic suggests how to consume less salt:
  • Eat fresh foods, rather than packaged or prepared varieties. And don't add salt.
  • Steer clear of convenience foods, such as instant cereals and puddings, canned soups, frozen meals, packaged mixes of rice and pasta, and gravies.
  • If you eat frozen entrees, look for those that contain less than 600 mg of salt.
  • Use orange juice or pineapple juice as a base for meat marinades, instead of salt.
  • Look for spices and seasonings that don't contain salt.
  • Don't use salt substitutes without getting your doctor's OK.
