If you've never experimented with different ingredients, making changes to a recipe may seem daunting. To be fair, sometimes simple changes can ruin a recipe. But with some knowledge of the ingredients' functions, you can lower the risk of having to put your creation go right from the oven into the garbage. In this banana bread recipe (and other "quick breads" like muffins), the role of salt is simply to add flavour. Therefore, removing it should only affect the taste. By comparison, in bread made with yeast, salt also control how quickly bread rises. You cannot remove it without making other changes to the recipe.
3 bananas (*3mg)
1 cup sugar (*2mg)
2 eggs (*116mg)
1/4 cup salt-free non-hydrogenated margarine (*16mg)
1/4 cup apple sauce (*2mg)
2 tsp baking powder (*618mg)
Preheat oven to 350F. Line the loaf pan with parchment or wax paper (to prevent the banana bread from sticking to the pan).
In one bowl, cream together the bananas, sugar, eggs, margarine and apple sauce until they are well mixed (will still be slightly lumpy).
In another bowl, mix flour and baking powder together.
Then lightly fold the dry mixture into the wet mixture until mixed through.
Pour the batter into the lined loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour, or until the loaf is firm and no uncooked batter sticks to a toothpick when poked into the center of the loaf.
*Total Sodium = 757 mg per 12 slices = 63mg per slice

Almonds, walnuts, peanuts, and peanut butter are rich sources of heart healthy monounsaturated fats which lower LDL (bad) cholesterol when substituted for saturated fat. Walnuts also contain omega 3 fatty acids which help prevent inflammation, reduce blood clot formation, lower triglycerides. Nuts are a calorie dense food so keep portion size is mind. Consider sprinkling nuts on salads, adding them to whole grain side dishes, or using as a topping for a yogurt/fruit parfait.|

|Sacred Sites and Earth’s Power Places|
|There are numerous sacred sites and power places all over the planet. What makes them sacred? Why do humans feel “power” emanating from the Earth? The answers are different for each person because we all feel things differently based on what is happening with our spiritual core, our connection with Gaia (Mother Nature), and our Akashic maturity (our cumulative past lives).|
|Delicious Tuna Salad|
Description: The tuna itself is very healthy; besides the fact that it's low in calories and fat, it is a great source of protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. A typical tuna sandwich at a restaurant contains up to a whopping 720 calories and 43 grams of fat. The problem with this fishy favorite is all the mayo that usually goes into it. So by choosing a Tuna Salad you avoid the mayo.
