Love Asian-style food but shudder at the huge amounts of sodium that come with store-bought bottles of sauce? It’s scary. One 2-ounce serving often ratchets up 1,500 mg of sodium. That’s more sodium than we should have for the entire day! Our Pritikin Asian Sauce, by contrast, has less than 30 mg of sodium per serving. Sure, this recipe is a lot of ingredients and a lot of time, but keep in mind that one batch can last a very long time because it freezes well. And it’s a lot less expensive than store-bought brands.
Ah yes! With Pritikin living, potatoes are a big wonderful “yes!” Enjoy these healthy hash browns. So savory, but completely free of added fats and salt.
This simple salsa is fabulous not only as a dip or condiment for Mexican-style foods but also as a snappy topping for grilled fish, chicken breast, egg-white omelettes, or green salads.
Why mess up your arteries with all the butter and cream of regular mashed potatoes when you can enjoy the rich piquant flavors of this recipe, and with no added fat. It’s a feast for both you and your heart!
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.
