Thanksgiving is often about abundance, or shall we say, overabundance. This year, ditch the unhealthy, calorie-dense ingredients. And at the same time, add some new zip to your dinner table. Here’s a roasted turkey breast recipe that sings with brand new flavors! Fresh pineapple, fresh oranges, fresh rosemary, balsamic vinegar, molasses… oh my!
This dish can do wonders for both your heart and waistline! It contains heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids from the fish. And it has about one-tenth the sodium that’s in many restaurant entrees. That’s very good news for your blood pressure! Also, this recipe adds up to only about 200 calories.
Crab Cakes a la Pritikin are a delectable combination of crab, veggies, garlic, egg whites, and salt-free Old Bay Seasoning — and only 50 calories and 70 milligrams of sodium per cake. Wow!
The beauty of this Lebanese Lentil Soup is that it tastes rich and creamy but contains no added fat, which makes it a perfect recipe if you’re trying to lose weight.
One of the extraordinary talents of our chefs at the Pritikin Longevity Center is taking food that is normally packed with blood-pressure-raising salt, like soups, and replacing that salt with ingredients like fresh herbs and other seasonings, like porcini powder, that are far more interesting – and tastier – than salt. This Cream of Mushroom and Crab Soup is a superb example.
Here’s a simple yet elegant seafood recipe. Our Pritikin chefs often use salmon or whitefish; shrimp and scallops are good choices, too.
Pair with a baked potato, sweet potato, or brown rice (try new easy-to-make brown rice bowls – just 90 seconds in the microwave – and the only ingredients are brown rice and water.)
Use this versatile sauce on everything from vegetables and tofu to chicken and fish. Plus, it freezes well.
