Food Network Magazine: not exactly a no salt, no fat, no sugar recipe haven

I recently subscribed to the Food Network Magazine (it was a Christmas special deal). I’m always scouring food magazines for no salt, no fat, no sugar recipes and thought I might find some in this successful title.

But alas I found little if anything I can eat on my heart-healthy diet. I should have suspected that I suppose.

I used to love watching Food Network cooking shows but have given that up as I came to realize its chefs are addicted to salt, fat and sugar in the recipes they tout.

The same is true of recipes in the magazine. There’s a section called Weeknight Cooking, for example, that has 10-12 entree recipes an issue. These seems to be the only recipes in each issue that list nutrition content. Some aren’t too bad when it comes to salt. One recipe for Chicken with Ginger Beet Noodles, for example, has 605 mgs of sodium a serving. But it also contains 20 grams of fat and 3 grams of saturated fat.

A recipe for Cauliflower-Crust Artichoke Pizza has 1,479 mgs of salt per serving! Cauliflower crust is in vogue these days. But this recipe is a reminder that just because an ingredient sounds healthy the recipe it is used in may be anything but.

So if you’re looking for low-salt, low-fat, low-sugar recipes, you’d be better off checking my recipe page than subscribing to Food Network Magazine.
