Mashed potatoes have to be one of my favorite foods, and I have been working on perfecting my mashed potato recipe since I was a teen. I created some really great mashed potatoes, which are now (unfortunately) off limits for a low sodium diet. But the big diet change did not mean that we had to abandon mashed potatoes entirely.

Who doesn’t love burritos? Lose the high sodium tortilla and you can have a really great burrito bowl with the added bonus of being super adaptable for different diets. I keep my serving low-calorie by minimizing the rice & beans, and salt eaters can simply add cheese, salsa, olives, or even guacamole. Because it is so easy to adapt from plate to plate, I keep this recipe tucked away in my back pocket and pull it out when I need to cook for a group.
Pizza, oh pizza. One of the joys in life, but one that is usually out of bounds on a low sodium diet. But it turns out that you can make some really great pizzas, and this simple combination is one of our favorites. Continue reading “Tomato Basil Pizza”
I am so glad that I am finally sharing this recipe with you. Is it because I want to enrich your lives with a creamy, delicious comfort food? Nope. It is because the photos make me so hungry. There is something about noodles and that sauce that makes me want to eat everything in sight. In fact, as I sit here typing this, I am eating some ice cream. And I had better get this post out fast because I’ve nearly finished the pint and I will undoubtedly want another snack if I have to look at these pictures much longer.
