  • Note: The American Heart Association says it's okay to have up to 2,400 milligrams of sodium per day (unless your doctor has put you on a strict low-sodium diet). If you eat three meals a day, that works out to about 800 milligrams of sodium per meal. So you can have a serving of Ham Steak with Pineapple Salsa (563 milligrams sodium) and stay within the guidelines--just be sure to watch the sodium content of other foods you eat during the day.
