And here is what the Bible said about what to feed honord guests…

Genesis 18: 7­8
Abraham also ran to the herd, and took a tender and choice calf and gave it to the servant, and he hurried 
to prepare it. 

He took curds and milk and the calf which he had prepared, 
and placed it before them; and he was standing by 
them under the tree as they ate.

Hmmm, beef! Not veggies! Or tofu!

And what about salt?

Meta analysis of 167 sodium diet studies
Effect of reduced sodium levels in
people with normal and high BP.
Low sodium diets: no effect on BP, but…
increased risk of CHD
American Journal of Hypertension
(2012); 251, 1–15

NO EFFECT on Blood Pressure!

But look here…

Current salt recommendations:
1500 mg/day males >50 years of age
<2400 mg everyone else
Practically, only fruit juices fit this requirement. Eliminates all meats and most vegetables from diet.
Disconnect: Public diet recommendations and science.
