Thanskgiving Menu: search the Web for low-salt options

Thanksgiving menus can be challenging when you’re on a no-salt, no-fat, no-sugar diet. I’ve been writing and will continue to write this week about low-salt options.

But I also went searching online and found a variety of sites and recipes you can try. These are no-salt focused, so some items have too much fat and/or sugar to make. You can adjust some with lower-fat ingredients, I would think.

The Low Sodium Gourmet has a stuffing recipe I may try, using no-salt bread instead of just wheat bread. It also has what sounds like a tasty way to make string beans more than plain string beans. Its cheese cake is out of the question because of fat content, however.

Here's a fresh turkey with 50-70 mgs of sodium per serving. Stick to fresh is you can to avoid more salt.

This Howcast video has some good basic guidelines, including one I wrote about, namely buy a fresh turkey, not one filled with high-sodium basting solution. It also covers salt-free broth and low-salt whipped cream which I didn’t think existed. The pie again I would avoid because of fat and sodium concerns.

The Daily Dish has a page with 50 low-sodium Thanksgiving recipes. I haven’t had the chance to check them all, at first glance several probably have too much fat, so pick and choose.
