Just Give Me A Salt Lick!!!!

I am on a salt restriction with my high blood pressure if I have not made that abundantly clear in previous posts. I think I have. But I have also said that when I am traveling on business it is extremely difficult to watch my salt. I mean, there are only so many choices. I have to eat something to take my pill in the morning/afternoon. So on day one I had a bag of Doritos Cool Ranch. Ugh. Then that night I had a double quarter pounder with cheese and some fries from McDonald's. Ugh again. On day two I had a McDouble to take my pill with. I actually bought two and saved one which I ate today to take my pill. But on day two dinner was a Reuben from Culver's with some onion rings. Ugh again. Tonight I am thinking about getting a couple of burrito supremes and a chicken enchilada from Taco Bell. UGH AGAIN!!! I am doomed.

Even if it does not raise your blood pressure, salt is bad for your kidneys and it can contribute to kidney disease and kidney stones. See, I learned stuff taking my sister to the urologist to treat said stones. Not fun. Try some fresh fruit, especially a banana or an orange. Even a tomato, with cottage cheese (no salt and pepper). I know it is hard when you are traveling on business.
If you are bothered by salt, I'm sure with a little creativity you can find a way to avoid it or greatly reduce it. I rarely eat salt in anyway as I eat fruits and vegetables uncooked and each has its interesting taste. It takes a while and determination to desalt ourselves.
