15 “Healthy” Snacks That Are Harmful to Your Heart Health

15. Cottage Cheese

Cottage Cheese –

Cottage cheese and fruit has long been considered to be a healthy snack. However, cottage cheese conceals a nasty surprise—almost a day’s worth of sodium in just one serving. One cup of cottage cheese has approximately 1,000 mg of sodium. This is nearly 70 percent of your daily sodium. Cottage cheese is high in calcium, protein, and minerals. So, try choosing a little or no salt added cottage cheese and pair it with some fruit for a heart-healthy alternative. You can also substitute Greek yogurt instead. It is packed with protein, and most varieties of Greek yogurt are low in sodium.
