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
Garlic
Since 1986, responsible medical journals published 31 studies on how garlic affects blood pressure and cholesterol. Many suggest that garlic lowers both. Experts recommend roughly 1-4 cloves per day for heart-healthy benefits. The final word on garlic awaits even more research, but eating modest amounts seems safe and probably good for us. Try adding garlic to salads, pastas, rice dishes, soups, potatoes, and even sandwiches.

Recipe
Spinach & Cilantro Pesto
Category: Raw Foods
Description: One leafy, green vegetable that I cannot seem to get enough of is Spinach. Spinach is so versatile, from spinach salads, to spinach smoothies, to spinach soup. You name the recipe and spinach can be added to it. And talk about nutritious…remember Popeye?? The health benefits of spinach are numerous. It sits at the top of many super food lists. Spinach is loaded with calcium, folic acid, vitamin K and Iron. It is also rich in Vitamin C, fiber and caretenoids. Add its lutein and bioflavanoids and spinach becomes a nutritional powerhouse.
The combination of flavours in the following recipe are simply divine. I’ve cheated a bit and toasted the cashews, but it’s worth it for the enhanced flavour.
