I miss cakes and cookies so much since my angioplasty, but I’m restricted to no more than 40 grams of fat a day and 1,200 mgs of salt, so baked goods are largely off my plate these days. I’ve been searching for some that are low- or no-fat and low- or no-sodium at the same time, with some good results.
A favorite is Irene’s fat-free biscotti slices carried by Whole Foods and until recently by my local Jewel supermarket.
Each slice contains zero fat, only 5 mgs of salt and 3g of sugar. A slice, there are about 18 in a container, is only 20 calories, so here, finally, is something you can binge on while on a restricted diet! I always buy the cranberry ones because they are the only variety without nuts. If you eat nuts, there are several other types you can try.
I agree. These delectable biscotti are mouth watering, low calorie, and low sugar which makes me not feel so bad about eating a whole box! So grateful for these!
