It’s top 10 year-in-review list time again and we’ll join the trend by writing about our Top 10 Most Viewed No Salt, No Fat, No Sugar Recipes for 2017. Our No Salt, No Fat, No Sugar Recipe Page, featuring scores of recipes we’ve found and/or tried ourselves, was far and away the most viewed thing on our site in 2017, drawing 14,101 views.
But I wanted to drill down a little deeper to see which recipes on the page visitors were clicking on most. The results :
Sunday is movie day in our house. We normally go to the first show of the day to get cheaper tickets because why pay more to see the same movie a few hours later? Movie theaters today are adding all sorts of new perks to get people to leave their houses. One of the new perks is expanded food options.
AMC is a large theater chain and I saw recently that it has what it’s calling the AMC dine-in menu now. The cardboard menu they give you to pick from actually has calorie counts right on it for every dish, a requirement that comes from the healthcare law commonly called Obamacare.

This website started to give people on restricted diets alternatives to eating nothing but bland, boring food. People told us back in 2012 that no one would care about salt, fat and sugar in their food. But those naysayers were wrong, apparently.

Medical issues this year have kept me from posting as often as I have in the past, but expect that to change in the coming year. I’ll be back, finding and trying recipes that are tasty yet also low-salt, low-fat and low-sugar for you.
I’m not a big fan of infographics, they usually only scratch the surface on a topic and I always want to know more. But I recently ran across this sodium test after completing a cardio-rehab program at my local hospital (this after a second angioplasty in five years for me this past June) and thought it worth sharing.
Try to math them up without looking at the answers first. I doubt many of you will find all the hidden sodium in some of the food items listed.
Sodium lurks in so many everyday food, like bread, ketchup and any processed meat. Beware of it.
It seems that everything we put in our mouths these days is full of salt, fat, and sugar. If you are trying to cut down on the Big Three, this isn’t very helpful for your diet. In fact, it’s a killer because SFS (salt, fat, sugar) are the main ingredients which are unhealthy in large quantities. Of course, the key is to lower the amount of each you eat on a daily basis, yet it is easier to say than do. With salt, fat, and sugar everywhere you turn, it can seem almost impossible. Luckily, it’s a realistic possibility with the following tips.
Step One: Lowering Fat
Too much fat is without a doubt the biggest enemy, so let’s tackle this one first. The odds are you like to fry food because it is a quick and easy way to prepare a meal. Did you know the following facts about frying meat and vegetables?:
McDonald’s has been working hard to improve the image of its food offerings, wanting to get away from seeming processed or simply bad fast food and I give it credit for those efforts. But sadly I think it’s still missing the point, at least for someone like me worried about salt, fat and sugar in my diet.
The McDonald’s Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich is its latest attempt. artisan conveys a sense that this chicken is somehow more special than its regular chicken sandwich. So I was really hoping to see that in its nutrition information. What I saw instead though was a mountain of salt.
So what has happened? Has there been a drastic reformulation of Naf Naf food for the worse, or is something wrong with it’s nutrition info on-site?
I wrote an enthusiastic post about the relatively new fast food chain Naf Naf Grill back in 2014 when I discovered the low-salt content of its pita bread and the low-fat content of its beef in a pita offering. I’ve been touting it to friends and family ever since.
