Neptune Cheesecake - No Sodium Recipes For National Nutrition Month

I haven't had cheesecake in a long time. I have tried others, but haven't ventured into making my own as yet.  I think I would love to try my own. It seems to always taste better....according to my kids of course :)


Do you like cheesecake?


There's more to healthy nutrition than meets the eye – proper nutrition comes down to the right serving size, eating foods naturally rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals, the right amount of protein and keeping your sugar and sodium in-take in check.

In honor of March's National Nutrition Month, arm yourself with the right knowledge and recipes for life (not just the month).

I've included several healthy and easy recipes below, created by Executive Chef at Pritikin Longevity Center + Spa,, Anthony Stewart.

All of the recipes below contain zero salt!
Bon Appetite!
