Exactly how much of too much?

Coming from a long line of people with blood pressure issues, I've always been sodium-conscious. I never add salt to anything I'm eating, and only a little when I'm cooking (which I admit made me unpopular as a soup-maker in the days before I realized you have to start with stock, not just water. Ahem.)

But wowza, did this article ever give me a wakeup call:

The Globe and Mail writes about Salt

I'm about 1000 mg over on an average non-chocolate or ice-cream day, if it's possible for there to be enough of those to get an average.

Time to revamp the pantry. But on the upside: procrastination opps!!
