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.
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.
