Bread is one of the biggest carriers of evil salt in our daily diets. If you’re trying to eliminate salt as I have been since my angioplasty, you’ve likely given up breads, indeed baked goods, of all kinds.
I have found one alternative, a whole wheat, salt-free bread at Trader Joe’s that I use in my Thanksgiving stuffing now. But I miss baked goods terribly, so I’m always on the lookout for other options.
Thomas’s multigrain English muffins are one of the alternatives I’ve found that are tasty and relatively low in salt and fat.
One muffin has only 160 mgs of salt, 1 gram of sugar and one gram of fat. That’s about a tenth of my daily salt, acceptable for one item in one meal during the day. I spread a sugar-free jam or jelly on them for some added flavor and enjoy them as a special Saturday breakfast treat.
Let me know what you think of them, and also let me know if you’ve found some other low-salt bread options.
Thanks for the great suggestion–just the sort of thing I have been looking for to fit into my low-salt, low-calorie and low-sugar diet.
Love the suggestion english muffin multigrain. Can’t wait to buy them.
