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.
Ahh! Two treasures of summer – watermelon and basil – in one refreshing, super-easy soup. And so healthy. Many soups are full of heart-damaging saturated fat and sodium. For example, a bowl of Sweet Corn Soup at Chili’s Restaurant has 20 grams of saturated fat (the equivalent of two Big Macs) and 960 milligrams of sodium (more than half what we should have for the entire day). Our Tomato, Watermelon, and Basil Soup has zero fat and a mere 15 milligrams of sodium.
Indulge yourself with Caribbean Chowder, a zesty mingling of seafood, veggies, and spices like chipotle.
Homemade sauces are especially helpful if you’re trying to cut down on sodium. A typical serving of store-bought BBQ sauce, for example, has 500mg of sodium and often more. Our recipe has just 15mg.
A wonderful Roasted Pepper Gumbo recipe to serve at your next party.
