This seafood salad is quick and easy to make. It is delicious and at the same time filling. Using your food to help lower your high blood pressure levels could not be made any easier.
Most people eat salads throughout the year but in the fall and winter months we should be focusing on more warming and earthy foods. I do eat salads all year but mostly in the spring and summer months.
Spring is the season for growing baby greens, lettuce greens and to find fresh baskets of greens from the farmers market.
This lip smacking and satisfying salad can be part of your recipes for high blood pressure.
Bye-bye bowls of boring salad. Most people resign themselves to eating iceberg lettuce. Knowing that after eating the last tomato they will still be hungry.
But not this salad that is colorful, features a variety of tastes and also pairs nicely with grilled chicken. It is nutritional and is filled with heart healthy ingredients like romaine lettuce, tomatoes, onions, parsley, to name a few.
These dark leafy greens are rich in calcium, chlorophyll, iron and vitamins C and E. Leafy greens lift our moods, and heal our organs that's damage from the stress of high blood pressure.
