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.
Aloo Baingan is a very popular North Indian eggplant and potato stew, simple to make and oh-so-savory. If you love eggplant, you’ll love this recipe, and your waistline will really love the fact that this recipe (unlike most eggplant recipes) has absolutely no oil.

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.
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.
The Spa Experience festival in Aspen featured Pritikin Executive Chef Anthony Stewart and other internationally renowned chefs. Each contributed signature dishes. Chef Anthony, who won the prestigious Platinum Carrot Award, offered this favorite from the Pritikin Center. Mix and match the fish as you see fit.
