Dietitian Notes / Recipe Tips

Add salt as an ingredient? We often develop a taste for salt however too much and too often can increase blood pressure and have a negative impact on bone health.

Try weaning yourself off salt – if at first you have 3 shakes on your meal reduce this back to 2 shakes for a couple of months, then 1 shake and so on.
