Unless you're an incredibly careful health nut who studies through the nutritional contents of literally everything you put in your mouth, and calculates your mineral intake, chance are you're eating way too much salt. While the recommended salt intake is 3.75 grams per day aka 1500mg of sodium, most of us consume at least 8.5(!!) grams. There. That's the big, salty truth.
If your weekday dinner includes a frozen pizza and you're munching on chicken nuggets and fries on a regular basis, it might not come as a big shock for you. After all, we all know that too much salt = unhealthy, and unhealthy = fast food. But if you think you have managed to maintain at least a moderately healthy diet, it might be saltier than you think:
With the trend of beer and food pairing on the rise, we (as quite solid beer AND food lovers) got curious and wanted to break the science down to details - what specific dishes would certain beers pair best with?

Watermelon juice has been on the rise lately, being praised by lifestyle bloggers, health and fitness nuts, and even the salespeople in our local farmers market. And it makes sense - you might think that watermelon is nothing but water and fructose, but it's actually an impressively great source of vitamin C, phenolic antioxidants, lycopene (important to the health of your cardiovascular system), vitamin A, and other nutrients.
It all sounds pretty great, but let's be honest - while filling up on salads and countless glasses of watermelon juice, all anyone is actually wishing for on a steamy summer day is a big portion of freezing cold, refreshing ice-cream. If only it would come as guilt-free as those bottles of cold-pressed juice... Well. It does now!
