This is an exciting small-plate addition to a party. It allows each guest to pick and choose their own ingredients for their Asian-style wrap. And it allows you to say, “Everything’s 100% Pritikin healthy — very low in calories, sodium, sugar, and fat, and very high in fiber and beneficial nutrients.”

Our homemade Pritikin sauces are especially helpful if you’re trying to cut down on sodium. A typical cup of store-bought marinara sauce has 500+ milligrams of sodium. Our sauce has a mere 20 milligrams of sodium, but lots of superb flavor thanks to all the fresh ingredients.
Store-bought varieties of meatless meatballs tend to be high in sodium, and pricey. Try this simple recipe. Maybe even get the kids and grandkids involved! They’ll love molding their own little balls, and will want to sample their creations come dinner. At the supermarket, you can usually find meat substitutes like Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) and Textured Soy Protein (TSP). Serve with whole-wheat pasta and freshly diced tomatoes and/or low-sodium marinara sauce.
When it comes to choosing an entree for dinner, the Pritikin Eating Plan advises skinless, white-meat turkey or chicken for two reasons. These sources of poultry are high in protein and at the same time, reasonably low in cholesterol and saturated fat. When it comes to making a rich and satisfying meatloaf dish that is healthy but still delectable, extra lean ground turkey is the way to go.
