This website, the No salt, no fat, no sugar Journal, began in December 2012 with the goal of helping people on restricted diets find foods they could still enjoy, and even love the way they once loved the foods that they could no longer eat.
The site had only 57 views that first month. Building a following for a new site is a difficult endeavor, especially when there’s no money for marketing or online advertising to get the word out. But we kept plugging away through 2013 and into last year, when something amazing happened.
The word about this site started getting out in 2014 and views climbed steadily throughout the early part of the year. By December, we had topped 30,000 views since our inception, a major milestone. Our 12 days of Christmas low-salt, low-fat, low-sugar meals were a major viewer hit, sending our weekly traffic above 1,000 twice to record weekly views.
Thank you to all our viewers, I can promise you the best is yet to come. Watch for an expanded recipe page this year. No salt, no sugar recipes have become the major draw to the site, so we will be experimenting with new recipes this year and invite our readers to send us theirs.
Other changes will come along as well, all to make the site easier to navigate and more helpful for everyone trying to watch their salt, fat and sugar intake.
