Description:
This Sodium Reduce Bannad bread recipe has only 757 mg per 12 slices that equals to 63mg per slice. To compare on bagel is about 400 mg of sodium.

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.


Ingredients:

(*Sodium Content)

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)




Directions:
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.

Wellness Tip
Exercising for a Better Mood
If you're feeling down, consider adding exercise to your to-do list. Research shows that exercise has the ability to improve mood and reduce depression. Even if you are seriously depressed, exercise can still be one of several interventions recommended by your physician or mental health professional. Exercise is not a cure all, but it releases endorphins, often creates a sense of accomplishment, and thus improves well-being.

Mushroom Risotto
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: Wild mushrooms are the best non-animal source of vitamin D going and some have the added benefit of vitamins B and C as well. They are also a good source of antioxidants such as polyphenols that have been linked with cancer-risk reduction and antiaging.
To prevent mushroom poisoning, mushroom gatherers need to be very intimately familiar with the mushrooms they intend to collect, including knowledge of the toxic species that look similar to these edible species. Best buy from a trusted health store or supermarket.
