Just almonds


Reading the sodium levels on some packages of nuts is enough to raise your blood pressure. We like three varieties of Sunkist Almond Munchies, which provide good fats and vitamin E without sodium overload. Roastie Toasties are lightly salted, with only 95 mg of sodium per serving (23 nuts), in The Raw are plain, and Nudies, with 105 mg sodium, are roasted and skinless--for adding to salads or dishes like green beans almondine. The USDA recommends limiting sodium intake to help prevent high blood pressure. At grocery stores for $4 per six-serving bag.
