Yikes! of the day

Did you know that cottage cheese has a crazy amount of sodium?

I am trying to pay more attention to the hidden sodium in our food, especially for Girly. She eats mostly whole foods, but does love cheese. I've been giving her whole milk cottage cheese, and even sought out the organic kind, and just today realized there are 520mg of sodium in 1/2 cup!! That's as much (or more) than she needs in a whole day!

I almost fainted, but then my blood pressure was so high from all the sodium we've been eating that I was just fine.

I'm sure brands vary in the amount, but this was surprising to me. Maybe you have been paying closer attention.

Back to the drawing board ...
