Make your own deli-style sliced turkey—it’s fresh and delicious, with a fraction of the sodium found in traditional deli meat. Sriracha hot chili sauce is a favorite for adding punch to dishes. Here, it gives a small kick of flavor to turkey, while mayo keeps the breast tender.

Fact: It’s not uncommon for 4 ounces of lean turkey from the deli to have 1,000 milligrams of sodium or more. That puts you nearly halfway to the recommended daily total for adults, which is 2,300 milligrams.
