Low-So Good Thanksgiving Roundup

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. I repeat: Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. That’s because it marks the start of “snuggle” season, where the air gets cooler. The neighborhood gets covered in lights. The music on the radio changes from Top 40 to jingle bells. Evenings get filled with alternating smells of squash soup and cinnamon. And, as for the holiday itself, the home and the table gets filled with tradition, memories, and family and friends. But if you’re on a low-so or really ANY kind of special diet, holiday season may give you both stress and indigestion. And that’s because so […]

Low-So Lunch: Rock the Roll

要完成我们的月份,低等午餐(也称为4月),我想告诉你全能的午餐卷。午餐卷背后的原则非常基本:你需要几件准备的东西(包括一些粘性或糊涂和可食用的东西),并在另一件即食的东西中包装。这是一个非常简单的午餐数学。现在,难以找到低钠形式的那些东西。一些最流行的卷往往是装有制备的鹰嘴豆或Pesto(钠)和预煮熟的熟食肉或鸡肉(钠)的Lavash卷(钠)。当然,还有[...]

Roasted Lamb Thanksgiving Roundup

Alright friends. Get ready for a roundup of Thanksgiving dishes that is going to be bigger than last year’s 26-pound turkey. Hint: anytime you see anything bolded in orange, that is a link to a recipe or tips. So click away for total Thanksgiving domination. But before we jump into the lentil gravy boat (see how I did that?) and talk stuffing, sides, and other non-traditional dishes, let me say this about this year’s low-sodium holiday feast: break tradition. I give you permission. It’s the easiest way to free yourself from the salty brines and canned soups, and create a whole new […]

Low-So Broccoli Tater Tots

You may be skeptical, you may be amazed. But either way, behold the broccoli tater tot! (I think I just won motherhood) But before we get into specifics, let me explain something: I’m not a believer of “hiding” vegetables from my daughter or a green-fearing person of any age. But I sure do love the idea of stuffing vegetables in really yummy things, wherever and however possible. Like tater tots. Everybody loves tater tots. This is not up for discussion. And recently I’ve found that broccoli can do a lot more than steam and turn into mush. It makes a great pesto. I love it chopped and […]

Salt-Free Chunky Carrot Dressing

胡萝卜不仅仅是兔子。或蘸酱。或炖菜。或在微波中过度蒸汽。新鲜胡萝卜是美丽的东西。他们实际上是彩虹色的颜色,这将很容易爵士爵士起来的蔬菜派对拼盘。而且整年都很长的是“季节”。你不能说芦笋或樱桃或白色裤子。最重要的是,天然钠的红萝卜高于大多数整个成分。它的图表为每大胡萝卜50毫克。 Seriously. Take a look at a bottle of carrot juice the next time you’re at the market. Which is why they […]

Salt-Free Super Steam Buns

Happy almost Super Bowl Chinese New Year. If you’ve never celebrated before, it’s a very special time of year where people eat dumplings and chicken wings all in the same weekend. Or at least, that’s what is happening in my house. And if you’ve been on the Internet lately you’ve probably been bombarded with different recipes for dim sum, pot stickers, and egg rolls, all loaded with high sodium products (including those ready to use wrappers). Which is why I made something special for you: SUPER SALT-FREE STEAMED BUNS. All so you can celebrate, of course. First things first, I […]

Mama’s Green Bean Casserole

我不是在这里辩论钻石是女孩最好的朋友的想法。我接受。但我要指出,一些女性说服的人有不同的朋友(物质说服)的不同概念。像钻石一样的东西,让他们充满喜悦和兴奋。如果你是我的母亲,那些东西包括烤花椰菜和茄子和甘薯,蒸西葫芦和锅炒的布鲁塞尔豆芽。几乎是任何蔬菜劝说。我不是在开玩笑。所以,如果你想让她在母亲节那样,请务必添加[...]

2013 Love Your Heart Recipe Rally

Let’s begin with the facts and the numbers, because that’s always a very good place to start: The recommended daily sodium intake for a healthy American is 2,300mg, which equals 1 teaspoon of salt The recommended daily sodium intake for over 50% of adults (due to health problems, age, and other needs) is 1,500mg, which equals just over 1/2 teaspoon of salt Nine out of 10 Americans (that’s 90%) eat almost double the recommended daily intake, averaging over 3,500mg per day (and if you really consider the soy-sauced sushi, chorizo burrito, and milk swamped cereal…that number climbs even higher and adds […]
