Recipes For High Blood Pressure:
Fixing Your Diet

Learn how to create special recipes for high blood pressure control and treatment. You can eat what you like, if you know what substances you should reduce or totally avoid in your diet. Remember your intake of how many calories you consume is also very important. InfoonHBP provides you with different types of food categories recipes.

Yogurt and fruits.

When it comes to finding recipes that helps to lower high blood pressure, there are numerous options on the web. The American Heart Association and other nonprofit organizations provide excellent resources online that focus on recipes that are great for those who have high blood pressure. 

What if you want to change your recipes for foods that you like in order to make them better for blood pressure?  Great!!  If you are not looking for a whole new high blood pressure diet, but you do want to make the foods that you are currently eating better for you, the good news is, you can do that.

One of the first places to start is with seasoning. For example, sodium is very bad for those who have high blood pressure. Reduce the amount you consume to no more than 1500 mg per day (you do need salt in your diet).

Instead of flavoring food with sodium, try seasoning products that are made without any salt at all. Use herbs and spices to add flavor without salt.

On the other hand, there are plenty of things you should introduce into your diet that will help you improve your health:

  • Instead of using a lot of butter or vegetable oil in a pan to fry something, use extra virgin olive oil or non fat sprays, and decrease the amount you use.

  • Add more garlic to your dishes, it is so flavorful. A clove a day will help to reduce your blood pressure naturally.

  • Eat more fish. Fish that is high in DHA is important for maintaining a healthy heart and can help to reduce your blood pressure.

  • Eat more vegetables. If you do not like them, cut them up very small and add them to soups and stews. You still get the nutrition from them but you do not see or taste them.

  • Switch to whole grains instead of eating foods that are high in white carbs. Whole grain breads, pasta, rice and others are critical to heart health. You are not likely to notice a taste difference here at all.

Focus On Foods You Like

If you do not like one food, try something new. Best of all, try to add new foods to your diet, too. Do not think of what you lost but what you are gaining by trying new things.

Take the time to adjust recipes for high blood pressure instead of giving up foods that you like. In most cases, you can find alternative solutions.

Make Your Own Dressing

Virgin olive oil.

You can whip together your own delicious topping.

Mix three parts oil, (consider olive, walnut or flaxseed) with one part vinegar, (red wine, apple, raspberry or tomato) or citrus juice (try mandarin orange, lemon, lime). Then add a little brown sugar, and herbs like cilantro, oregano or sea salt to taste.

Try this dry rub turkey recipe that also includes a vegetable thats high in potassium, a mineral that assist in the control of high blood pressure.

Make Salads Your Main Course

Instead of relegating salad to a side dish, make it the main dish and include a lean meat. No one needs to be hungry while on a diet and food can be flavorful at the same time.

If you are having a small dinner party you can offer your guests an array of salads to pick from over the course of dinner, ending with a fruit salad for dessert.

All these salads can be included in any meal plan, help in the treatment of overcoming high blood pressure and is part of my recipes for high blood pressure.
