Super Bowl low-salt, low-fat snacks: try filling these mini-puff pastry cups

Two shells have only half a gram of fat and 15 mgs of salt, so you can actually eat a bunch and not consume all that much fat and salt.

The Big Game is coming this Sunday but if you’re on a low-salt, low-fat, low-sugar diet, most traditional game-day munchies are out for you. I’ve written before about looking for low-salt potato chips and salt-free taco chips, but even with those you still have to worry about fat content.

But recently I came across these mini puff pastry cups. Two shells have only half a gram of fat and 15 mgs of salt, so you can actually eat a bunch and not consume all that much fat and salt. Fill them with salt-free treats like cut-up tomatoes or pieces of shrimp. Or make something hot (watch for a recipe for my low-salt salsa, tomato, mushroom filling later this week).

These mini cups are low in fat and salt and sugar-free. Fill them with salt-free treats for Super Bowl munching.

The ones I bought at a Safeway are already cooked and sold frozen. Thaw them to eat. If you fill with anything wet, like salsa, eat them the same day or they get a bit soggy in the frig over night.

      1. I know what you mean! When I cook I don’t use measurements most of the time, well, unless I have to…Of course, when I write a recipe for the blog I have to. 🙂 …But baking gets easier with practice! After a few tries, you just know if the dough has the right consistency 🙂
