The Worst Salty Foods
The Saltiest Foods of 2011
Watch Out for These Salt Bombs
Worst "Healthy" Entree
IHOP Thick-Cut Bone-In Ham & Eggs
4,310 mg sodium
61 g fat (19 g saturated)
Sodium Equivalent: 37 servings of Planter’s Cocktail Peanuts (that’s more than three 12-oz cans!)
IHOP is another chain known for egregious sodium levels. Even foods that sound relatively sodium-free are swimming in the stuff. Take an order of Buttermilk Pancakes. One order—5 pancakes—has 2,640 mg sodium. Things turn especially ugly when you start adding meat to the plate. You’d be wise to avoid any dish with steak or ham, which consistently contribute to a total of more than 2,000 mg per dish.
Eat This Instead!
IHOP Simple & Fit Turkey Bacon Omelette with Fresh Fruit
730 mg sodium
21 g fat (10 g saturated)
