My Favorite Tuna Salad

This is the tuna salad that my Mom always made and I have never stopped loving. It's great with crackers, on bread or toast, pita pockets, veggies or all on its own.

You can lower the sodium by buying low sodium sweet peas, which we have not been able to find as of yet.

Quick Pasta/Bean Veggie Dinner

A quick and easy dish that is great on a cold night.

For this recipe I have used low/reduced sodium canned beans and tomatoes, but when you have the time you can use fresh tomatoes when in season and prep your beans ahead of time.

Another little addition is that you can make it a bit more spicy if you wish by increasing the chili powder and pepper. Go with what you wish.

Hope you Enjoy!

My Favorite Sweet Spinach Salad

I love raw spinach salads and this one is one of my absolute favorites. My husband and I love to top it off with our favorite pesto dressing from Saluto's (a little local place in our corner of the world).

This salad is one I never get bored with and always have room for more. When we want a little added crunch we throw in a handful of Asian sesame noodles.

This recipe makes a batch to serve a total of ten - (2) cup size servings. It has a hint of a sweet kick to it and you can top it with the dressing of your fancy.

Enjoy!

My Favorite Glazed Baby Carrots

Steamed baby carrots with a tiny hint of sweetness. This is a very quick, easy and yummy sidedish.

Homemade Chicken Stock

This is a wonderful low fat and low sodium chicken stock that you can use many ways. Use the stock in place of water when cooking rice, veggies or use in recipes that call for chicken stock or in place of bouillon cubes.

This recipe will produce about 8 cups of chicken stock, which is 14 servings. So when using stock, remember to calculate correctly.

Example:
One Cup = 2 servings
Two Cups = 4 servings

My Favorite Slow Cooker Potato Soup

This is a great soup and quite hearty to warm one's soul. It makes 18 servings and is even better the next day.

Since our family has to watch sodium for medical issues, we do not use chicken soup base or bouillon when called for and instead use homemade chicken stock. By doing so we can control the sodium as needed. This recipe's nutritional info is if you are using homemade stock/low sodium homemade stock.

You may also cut back on the fat by using a substitute for the butter and/or cheese if you wish. We opted for Smart Balance Buttery Lite Spread for this recipe and nutritional info.

Remember the cooking time is 5 Hours on High or 8 Hours on Low in your Slow Cooker.

Please see the bottom of instructions if you wish to use chicken base instead of stock.

Hope you enjoy the recipe.
