African Stew

Vivid colors and fragrant spices are the hallmarks of this thick, all-vegetarian African Stew. Do you like paprika, cumin, cinnamon, sweet potatoes, garbanzo beans, and a dash of raisins? This recipe is for you!

Meatless Meatballs

Store-bought veggie meatballs tend to be high in sodium, and pricey. Try this simple recipe. Maybe even get the kids involved! They’ll love molding their own little balls, and will want to sample their creations come dinner.

Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup

There’s nothing more comforting than a bowl of Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup, but the sodium content of many recipes can be a staggering 600 mg per cup. Our Pritikin version has no added sodium but loads of deep, savory flavor.

Potato Salad

Regular potato salad is laden with mayonnaise, which can do a very good job of ladening your body with belly fat. Our Potato Salad, created by our chefs at the Pritikin Longevity Center, is light on calories but full of rich, zesty flavor.
