Go green and go fresh. Some vegetables are high in sodium, so stick to fresh vegetables like carrots, broccoli, spinach, cucumbers, asparagus, and eggplant or squash.

Eating vegetables cooked without added salt, or just a pinch of sea salt versus iodized salt can help regulate your potassium levels, as well, a complementing mineral of sodium. For example, a small tomato may have around 11 mg; raw spinach has 22 mg; and avocado, just 10 mg of natural sodium.
