We know that too much salt can spike our blood pressure. So, if you’ve overdone it with the sodium, because you ate things like canned soup and chips, here’s what to eat for dinner: A baked potato. Registered dietician Michelle Cook says baked potatoes contain tons of potassium, which helps remove excess sodium from your bloodstream. In fact, when your potassium level goes up, your sodium level automatically goes down. Other potassium-rich foods include cantaloupe, squash, halibut, and steamed broccoli. Potassium, the antidote to sodium.
