There is already talk of some of our favorites for the holidays in the months to come. This is a good topic to list any new takes on our Holiday favorites.
For the first recipe, we had mention of Green Bean Casserole being too high in sodium. Here are a couple of hyperlinks that I found on Spark Recipes for lower sodium versions of the green bean casserole, along with a low-sodium cream of mushroom soup, as that is where the major salt comes from in the recipe, since soup is loaded with sodium. Getting a lower salt form of the salt will cut the recipe way down. So whether you want to cut it somewhat or whether you need to cut the sodium severly, here are a few options. recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?
Ok, now this one is the low sodium mushroom soup. Just take the regular recipe, use no salt added or fresh/frozen green beans, skip adding the salt to the recipe and use french fried onions, though substitute this low sodium mushroom soup for the canned version that is overloaded with sodium: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?
