The Pink Flamingo has made no secret of the fact that I am far from thin. This said, I must also admit that I have a very real addiction problem. I love cheese enchiladas. I don’t want much on them, just a little red and a heck of a lot of salsa. I want cheddar cheese, That’s it. Contrary to how terribly sinful it sounds, it isn’t that bad. I don’t do sour cream, and I can’t stand green sauce, which is made with chicken fat. Now that’s nasty. Three cheese enchiladas, plain have about 450 calories. That’s not bad. It’s not fried, has very little salt, the cheese is protein, and the corn tortillas are not bad for you.
Since the dawn of the new cooking oils (saffron, sunflower, canola) I have developed some very serious food allergies, to the point where I’m at the throat closing, can’t breath, nearly pass out stage. These allergies never bothered me before it was determined that “we” needed to be doing healthy oils. I have a serious sunflower allergy, and many of these oils are made in the same presses.
I am going to hate myself for saying this, but…..
The Pink Flamingo has always come down on the side of the pro-salt faction. It is a vital part of life. Then I acquired a Mater who has a serious heart condition. More than 500 milligrams of sodium or salt can put her into congestive heart failure.
We argued with her, telling her she was off the mark on it, then I saw the results for myself. Until she began strictly regulating her intake of salt and sodium she was hitting the ER for the early stages of conjestive heart failure on an almost monthly basis.
And – trust me, she was “watching it” – carefully.
