Memorial Day salt free, fat free recipes

Memorial Day was once a time for burgers and brats, along with maybe some ribs and steaks on the grill, for me but not anymore, not since my angioplasty in 2012.

So now I’ve created some salt-free and low-fat options instead. Our cookout this weekend included salmon made on a cedar plank with a slat-free Mrs. Dash teriyaki glaze. As side dishes, I made asparagus with a balsamic vinegar glaze and a fruit salad with watermelon, cantaloupe and strawberries

For appetizers, I put out some low-salt, low-fat cheese I bought recently along with low-salt, low-fat crackers I buy at Costco.

For dessert, we had some Kemp’s low-fat frozen yogurt and, as a splurge, some mini-cupcakes from my local Jewel. Keep in mind that three mini-cupcakes has 15 grams of fat, about half my daily allowance, so they really are a once a year treat at this point in my life.

All in all, it was a tasty day, I think. I do miss the old foods, but I’m making the best of this new low-fat, low-salt, low-sugar life.

Happy Memorial Day to you and all of yours.
