I created a poll on EasyPolls.net to find out how much sodium my paleo peeps consume each day.
Please take 1 second to respond.
I'm very interested in the results.
For reference, 1/4 tsp of morton's salt is 590mg (25% daily value). 100% would therefore be 2.4 grams, or 1 tsp.
I wish I could respond, but I honestly don't keep track. I do know that I consume less than I did when I ate processed crap.
Yeah, I definitely don't keep track or measure out every bit I use. But I'm not shy to sprinkle it on my cooked food (primarily dinner.) I'm going to guess between 1-3g any given day. Higher on days I sweat a lot, lower on non-activity days.
The palate is the commander. I simply by marine salt, and only add in preparation of foods, never felt the nedd to add to already cooked foods.
I start my day with 1/4-1/2 tsp of himaylayian pink sea salt, mixed with water. I sprinkle it on all my food. I'd say I get at least 1500-2500 mg of sodium.
