Menus For The Dash Diet: Recipes To Stop Hypertension And High Blood Pressure?: Dash Diet Meal Plan To Lower Your Blood Pressure (Paperback)
This is a great starter for someone who is interested in transitioning to healthy eating. One thing that is nice about this cookbook is they explain why they use certain techniques over others, and take the time to explain things that may be unfamiliar within the cuisine.
Here's a look at the mechanics of the DASH diet and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle:
- Emphasizes vegetables, fruits, and whole-grains.
- Includes fat-free or low-fat dairy products, fish, poultry, beans, nuts, and vegetable oils.
- Limits foods that are high in saturated fat. These foods include fatty meats, full-fat dairy products, and tropical oils such as coconut, palm kernel, and palm oils.
- Limits sugar-sweetened beverages and sweets.
