Dash Diet - Key to Healthier Eating
Dash Diet Eating Plan
A study was done that indicated that elevated blood pressures were reduced by an eating plan that puts an emphasis on eating fruits, vegetables, and low fat dairy foods. It also includes food that is low in saturated fat, total fat, and cholesterol.
It's easy to adapt to a dash diet if you follow simple rules.
Change to a dash diet gradually.
A dash diet also means you treat meat as one part of the whole meal, instead of the main focus.
Use fruits or low fat foods as desserts and snacks.
| ||Fruits and low fat foods offer great taste and variety. Use fruits canned in their own juice. Fresh fruits require little or no preparation. Dried fruits are easy to carry with you.|
