Very healthy and slimming. Lots of vitamins, fiber, and other nutrients from all the vegetables. And very low in calorie density! A bowl contains just 100 calories. A bowl of regular squash soup, which is often loaded with fatty, heart-damaging ingredients like butter and cream, can easily tally up 400 calories.
The next time your stomach starts to grumble before dinner, try out the Pritikin recipe for Roasted Sweet Potato Hummus. This recipe is great because not only is it easy to make, but it’s a great way to get some of the Pritikin Eating Plan’s recommended five daily servings of complex carbohydrates such as whole grains, yams, beans and potatoes.
Bye bye burgers! Who needs ‘em when you’ve got one of Chef Anthony’s Hummus Wraps? They’re perfect for on-the-go living.
Our soup has loads of rich, velvety flavor, but only about one-third the calories of typical butternut squash soup.
This medley of shrimp, scallops and clams is served in a white wine sauce.
Serve with raw vegetables or crackers. Good whole-grain, low-sodium brand choices for crackers include Kashi TLC, Kavli, Ryvita, and Finn Crisps.
Every fall season this Butternut Squash Soup is a big hit in our dining room at the Pritikin Longevity Center. It has loads of rich velvety flavor but no added fat like butter or oil – typical ingredients in other butternut squash soups. That means our Pritikin version checks in at about one-third the calories.
