Tip: Experts say that every day we should not consume more than 5 grams of salt (quantity collected in a tea spoon) and sodium intake would not be allowed to exceed 2 grams. When you put salt on your meal, do it with your fingers, not with the salt shaker because in that way it easier to control the amount that you add to food.
