Thriftee's Low Cal, Low Sodium, High Flavor Recipes

I am trying to limit calories to 1700 a day, and limit sodium intake to 3000 mg a day, as well as exercise to lose weight and reduce my blood pressure, but I'm the type that likes to cook from scratch, and I like eating things that are as tasty as you'd find in a restaurant , without the high price.

If you are cooking for someone on a low sodium diet, use this recipe instead of taco seasoning. This recipe is the equivelant to one package of taco seasoning (or 3 tablespoons.) Adjust the strength of any ingredient to your taste.

It has a bit of BBQ sauce in it, which really soups up the flavor. Ground lamb can be used instead of the beef if you prefer. My kids like it both ways.

These are great for a quick nutritious breakfast or snack. The bulgar wheat with soy if very high in protein and fiber, so use it if you can, otherwise substitute more of the 7 grain cereal instead. Add chopped walnuts, and ice with buttercream or cream cheese icing if you don't have to worry about the calories. No icing for me, LOL.

Granola is good on yogurt or for munching. Recipe makes about 20 1/4 cup servings. Yes, you could substitute real maple syrup and/or honey if you like.
