I add salt to every vegetable I have to boil - potatoes, peas, corn, broccoli etc. - then add more on the plate. Never had a problem, and my BP is still in the ‘normal’ range for my age. Too much bs on max quantities, and not enough on moderation.
brityank You are correct. Salt is good for you. Elevated Blood Pressure has more to do with sugar than salt especially sea salt. I am an LPN nurse and I was very sick, I ate myself to wellness. I decided to report on my research so I created a blog. This is a link to one of the articles covering both salt and sugar.
My understanding is that salt intake should be about half of potassium intake. Potatoes, peas and broccoli are good sources of potassium so that should negate any "harmful" effects of the salt.
Black Beans are rich in potassium so I cook several dishes using them. I also buy low sodium V8 juice. It tastes horrible(in my opinion) so I add a quarter to half teaspoon of cayenne pepper to eight oz glass. Nice, spicy drink and healthy. Research cayenne pepper sometime, it's a good addition to a healthy diet.
