I knew I wanted to create something other than just salads for the segment so I decided that lettuce wraps would be a perfect alternative to traditional wraps or sandwiches.

Lettuce contains virtually no sodium, making it a great alternative to bread or tortillas!

Mango Avocado Ahi Lettuce Cups

This entire dish contains only 60 mg of sodium, which is about 7 mg per lettuce cup!  That’s a whole lot of delicious without a whole lot of sodium!

Strawberry Ricotta Salad

This Strawberry Ricotta Salad combines spinach, fresh fruit, pecans & ricotta cheese with homemade lemon vinaigrette for the perfect summer salad recipe!

Grilled Chicken Strawberry Summer Salad

This salad is the first of 3 new low-sodium recipes I’ll be adding to the blog in the next 24 hours!

Grilled Chicken Spinach Strawberry Ricotta Salad

Why the surge of new low sodium dishes you ask? Because I’ve been asked to host a low sodium cooking segment on San Diego 6 News tomorrow morning!

This will be my first live cooking segment and I could not be more excited!  If you’re in San Diego, tune in at 8:20 AM.  If you’re elsewhere in the world, look for a link to the video on my Facebook page tomorrow afternoon!

You can also follow me on Instagram and Twitter for live updates leading up to the segment tomorrow morning!

Now on to this delicious salad recipe!

Strawberry Spinach Salad

In addition to being low sodium, the news station asked that the dishes I prepare be easy to make, consist of only a few ingredients and require no cooking.

My mind immediately went to a fresh, summer salad!

Strawberry Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

Most of the sodium in a salad comes from the cheese and the salad dressing. The first step in creating a salad low in sodium is making your own salad dressing.

The dressing I created for this recipe contains only 5 mg of sodium per cup.  Compare that to a light Italian dressing purchased in the bottle which is 380 mg for 2 tablespoons and you’re saving some serious sodium intake!

Ricotta cheese, as well as mozzarella cheese are the lowest in sodium of all cheeses, so I sprinkled that on top to give the salad a little creaminess.

The entire salad contains only 140 mg of sodium, making it a delicious low sodium choice for a scrumptious lunch or fantastic side dish at summer BBQ’s!

Strawberry Ricotta Salad Ingredients

Strawberry Ricotta Salad Ingredients

  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/4 cup strawberries (stems removed and sliced)
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese (crumbled)

Lemon Vinaigrette Salad Dressing Ingredients

Lemon Vinaigrette Salad Dressing Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 lemon (zested and juiced)
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Whisk the balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, zest, and black pepper together. Add the olive oil while whisking well to combine.

Lemon Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

Add the spinach to a large bowl, then add the strawberries, blueberries and pecans. Top with the crumbled ricotta cheese.

Spinach Strawberry Ricotta Salad

Serve with 1/4 cup of the salad dressing and reserve the rest.  This salad dressing will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Spinach Strawberry Ricotta Salad

I decided to add a little protein with a sliced piece of Lemon Rosemary Basil Grilled Chicken.

Grilled Chicken Strawberry Ricotta Spinach Salad

Leave out the steak seasoning in my recipe for Lemon Grilled Chicken and one chicken breast only adds 70 mg of sodium to the salad, keeping it at approximately 200 mg of sodium total.

The recommended intake of sodium is around 2,000 mg per day, but can vary based on age, gender, height and weight.

Leave off the cheese and this recipe is also paleo!

Gluten Free Carrot Date Muffins

Gluten Free Carrot Date Muffins

A muffin with no sugar, no butter and no gluten, sounds too healthy to be good, right?

Wrong!  I substituted natures own sweeteners, dates and honey for sugar, then switched out the butter for super flavorful olive oil.  For the gluten free flour I used Premium Gold’s blend of heart healthy whole grain and flax seed flours.

Carrot Date Muffin Recipe

The funny thing is, this whole “healthy muffin” originated from me being a total hippie and wanting to use the carrot pulp from my Carrot Orange Strawberry juice I made the morning before!

Carrot Date Muffin Recipe

Yes, I’ve been juicing every morning instead of drinking coffee!  No coffee?  What?  I know, I didn’t think it was possible to live without coffee in the morning (especially the first 2 days after going cold turkey on caffeine!)  But, fast forward 10 days and I’m going strong!

I’ve given myself a 30 day challenge to replace coffee with juicing.  Look for a post in a couple of weeks with the results of my challenge, and in the meantime follow me on Instagram Whitney Bond or Twitte: @Whitney_Bond to see what I’m juicing up this week!

Now back to those muffins!

Everyone loves my Moms delicious pies and not only are they scrumptious, they’re also beautiful, just like her! 🙂

Muffet Bond with Cherry Pie

I asked her to share her famous cherry pie recipe on the blog.  She was happy to make it… and my Dad and their neighbors were happy to eat it! 🙂

Cherry Pie Ingredients

Pie Crust Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 3/8 cup milk
  • pinch of salt

Cherry Pie Filling Ingredients

  • 3 cans pitted tart red cherries, packed in water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

My Mom learned how to make the crust from her mother-in-law and my Grandma Meme. The trick is that the dough needs to be moist, so be sure to have enough liquid added to the flour.

Another tip from Mom is to roll out the dough on a floured dough sheet, with waxed paper on top to avoid sticking to the rolling pin.

To prepare the crust, sift the flour & add a pinch of salt.  Mix the oil & milk together.  Add the oil & milk to the flour mixture.

Roll out the dough, making enough for the bottom and lattice top.

The Perfect Pie Crust

Place the bottom of the dough into the pie plate.

The Perfect Pie Crust

To prepare the lattice top roll out the dough into a circle then cut the dough into 1/2 inch wide strips.

Set aside and prepare the filling.

To make the filling, drain the cherries, but reserve 1 cup of cherry juice.

Cherry Pie Filling

Combine the reserved cherry juice, sugar and cornstarch in a medium pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly until thick.

Cherry Pie Filling

Remove from the heat and stir in the cherries then pour into the crust.

How to make cherry pie

Top with the lattice crust by carefully weaving the strips of dough over the filling.

How to Make a Lattice Pie Crust

Continue until the entire pie is covered.

Lattice Pie Crust

Slice the crust pieces hanging over the edge then top the pie with 1 tablespoon of butter, cut into four cubes, then sprinkle the pie with sugar.

Bake 10 minutes at 450°F then reduce heat to 350° and bake 45 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

For the final day of “Baseball Week” I wanted to dedicate the recipe to one of my favorite cities, one of the most famous sports venues in the world and one delicious dish!

While the “Fenway Frank” comes to a lot of peoples minds when thinking Fenway Park food, the real action is just outside of the park where street vendors line the sidewalks and are cranking out sausage and peppers like they’re going out of style!

  • 1 red bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1 green bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1 red onion (sliced)
  • 5 spicy Italian sausages
  • 5 hot dog buns

Boston Sausage and Peppers Instructions

Begin by heating up the olive oil in a skillet.

I took this opportunity to try my new grill-safe skillet. It worked perfectly and I didn’t have to run inside to check on my peppers, then run outside to check on the sausage.  I just hung outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather we’ve been having in San Diego!

So back to the recipe, once the oil has heated up, add the peppers and onions to the skillet.

Grilled Peppers and Onions in Longaberger Flameware

Cook for 5-7 minutes, then add the sausages to the grill and continue sautéing the peppers and onions.

Cook for 10 minutes, flipping the sausages half way through cooking.

Place the buns on the grill for 1-2 minutes, then remove everything from the grill, place the sausages in the buns and top with the peppers and onions.

Simple as that you have a scrumptious, authentic Fenway Park Sausage and Peppers without actually traveling to Boston.

Although, I do highly recommend both traveling to Boston and checking out Fenway Park!  It was on my bucket list this summer and it was an awesome experience!

Bite Sized Chicago Dogs

This Bite Sized Chicago Dogs recipe combines all of the favorite toppings in a Chicago Dog & places them in fillo baskets for a bite sized baseball treat!

Mini Chicago Dogs

Before I began “Baseball Week” on the blog, I had one little boy, very special to my heart, in mind.

My friend Leanne has two of the most adorable and sweetest kids I know and they LOVE baseball!

538814_4782670731179_1765637034_n

I mean, hello cuteness!  And look at this little man all geared up for baseball season!

544638_10201150118781578_910790458_n

Seriously?  I could just scroll through her Facebook page all day looking at pics of these kids.  They are so cute and just as sweet as they can be!  I am so excited for them to visit San Diego this summer and get to hang on the beach with them!

I wanted to include a recipe dedicated to the Haynes kids because in addition to their love for baseball, unfortunately little Ryder was born with several food allergies including eggs, dairy and peanuts.

So many delicious stadium favorites include cheese or peanuts, so I set out on a mission to make something that would be fun for the kids to eat with no allergies to worry about!

Fillo Basket Chicago Dogs

Enter the “Bite Sized Chicago Dogs”!  While the kids may be Texas… or San Diego fans, the verdict is still out on that one! 😉  Everyone is a fan of the delicious “Chicago Style Dog”! Piled high with pickles, tomatoes, cucumbers and more, the Chicago Dog is an American classic!

My thought, why not combine all of the ingredients and place them in little bite sized dairy-free fillo baskets that are perfect for parties or just a fun bite-sized lunch!

After making homemade roti bread this week to dip into my yummy Curry Potato and Mushroom Soup, I knew I had to find an innovative and awesome use for the leftover bread!

Thai Pizza Recipe

My mind immediately went to pizza because well… I LOVE pizza!

Since my inspiration for the Roti Bread came from my favorite Thai restaurant I thought, Thai Pizza!  But this couldn’t just be a traditional Thai Chicken Pizza like everyone else does, oh no, I had to put my own twist on it!

I decided to slow cook a pork shoulder with my delicious Thai Peanut Sauce, shred the pork then place it on top of the pizza with some of my favorite “Thai Food Accouterments” like bean sprouts, carrots and cilantro.

The result was a trip to melt-in-your-mouth delicious town!

Cover and cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.

Shredded Thai Peanut Pork

Place the shredded pork back into the crock pot with the sauce and mix well.
