Enjoy these healthy recipes for a high blood pressure diet.
There’s no “magic bullet” for preventing high blood pressure, but a smart diet and regular exercise can go a long way toward keeping it at a healthy level. EatingWell food and nutrition editors have cooked up a variety of delicious and healthy recipes for high blood pressure.
Aim for a varied menu including high-potassium foods like fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy, as well as lean meats and fish. Try to avoid lots of sodium, saturated fats and excessive alcohol intake (alcohol can raise blood pressure, although no one knows exactly why). Maintaining a healthy weight is good insurance, too—experts say that losing 10 percent of your current weight can help lower blood pressure.
