Food on Friday ~ Hypertension

if you’re not hungry enough to eat an apple;
then you’re not really hungry, just bored

Yesterday I was diagnosed as having high blood pressure and told that I need to have a battery of tests, and prescribed some powerful medicine to help me.  To help myself I need to change my lifestyle;

  • eat a heart-healthy diet with less salt, less refined sugar, and less caffeine
  • get my weight into the green zone body mass index, which means losing about ten pounds
  • take regular exercise ~ which is a bit difficult given how much I hurt
  • give up booze and smoking ~ which is OK because I’ve never smoked and haven’t taken a drink since Christmas

The type of menu I should be on includes;

From Jessica at How Sweet Eats, Shredded Citrus Brussels Sprouts Salad with Avocado and Pomegranate.

Salmon and other oily fish are good too.  A recipe by Chungah at Damn Delicious; Lemon Dill Salmon in Foil.  I love these easy ‘wrapped in foil’ dishes.
