It has been a long marriage and man did they share some very good times together, but alas not all good things, but many of them, must come to an end.  As such, we are happy to report that in the month of June of the year 2011 the flavor additive known as salt and the city of Buenos Aires have officially split up.

Yes, you heard it right, restaurants in Buenos Aires will no longer offer salt shakers on their tables.  Why?  Because 3.7 million of the inhabitants of Buenos Aires suffer from hypertension.

That Was A Little Salty...

 

If you are anything like me, some days, okay, most days you don’t have time to make a decent breakfast.  What I end up doing is usually going for a couple of slices of cooked ham.  This actually helps me get through the morning and right on to lunch.

Just a few weeks ago I noticed that Winn-Dixie had a “low sodium” version of their ham so I gave it a shot and it turns out that not only am I saving myself about 150 mg of sodium per slice, but it also has less saturated fat than its 97% fat free counterpart.

Menos Malo Bottom Line: Yes, this ham is still probably not very healthy for me, but it sure is “less bad” than the one with normal sodium.
