Small Bites for Big Feasts

I am happily stuffed from Thanksgiving. But I’m far from being done with my holiday eatings. And I hope you aren’t giving up on the feasting any time soon either.

Because this holiday season, I want to hit everything on your wish-list.

I want to make sure all your wildest culinary dreams come, whether it is salt-free caviar or the perfect low-sodium BBQ spice blend. Or the personal butler to make you french fries any time of day or night.

And while I can’t actually help you with the butler thing (sorry, backordered on Amazon), I can most definitely help you with the salt-free couscous caviar. Good for your body and the budget.

And two kinds of bruschetta, one made with roasted tomatoes.

And one with balsamic marinated strawberries.

I can also help you with herbed pasta breadsticks in place of the typical cheesy ones.

And ricotta filled rigatoni, if you want something creamy.

Or all-spice pork wrapped dates, to curb those cravings as well.

All without a pinch of salt or the heaping mounds of sodium.

I know it sounds like a Christmas-Channukah-Kwanza miracle. But it is simplycraftiness in the kitchen and the right information that makes these tasty low-sodium treats worth sharing.

So if you’re raring to go, check out a segment I did with ABC’s Food Coach, Lori Corbin on how to salt-free your favorites salty holiday appetizers.

Then click on over to their website to get the full recipes.

And send me the holiday fare, whether it is food or that butler, you wish you had to make your low-sodium life even dreamier than it already is.

Chow on.

I’m looking forward to trying a couple of those recipes. My family’s traditional Christmas Eve and Christmas day dinners are a smorgasbord of appetizers, dips, and finger foods, almost all of which are off limits to me now. I find it rather difficult to prepare all the treats for everyone else and then not be able to eat them. Some of my favorites that I miss are Swedish meatballs in gravy and hot baked crab dip and artichoke dip.
