How can I restrict sodium when I eat out?

Ask plenty of questions. You are paying to eat out so do not hesitate to ask about how items are prepared. Whenever possible, ask for your choices to be made without salt.

Avoid any entree or side dish with cream, cheese, or seasoned sauces. Request items plain or if necessary, with sauces/dressings on the side.

Keep it simple. Choose grilled, baked, or broiled fish, poultry, or meats.

For dessert, try fresh fruit.
