DH has high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Any good recipes, anyone? We do eat alot of salad and fresh veggies, but he is a "meat, potatoes and gravy" kind of person.
Bumping again, anyone?
no actual recipes, but blood pressure is mostly affected diet wise by alcohol and salt so keeping those to a minimum is a good idea - I never add salt to recipes anymore, instead I use herbs to add flavouring. As far as cholesterol, the main culprit is not meat but the saturated fat that often comes with meat, so eating lean meat is fine, but you have to remove the skin from chicken and all visible fat from meat, use low fat mince (I buy l/f chicken mince) and l/f sausages etc. Changing your cooking oil to Olive oil can increase your good cholesterol levels which help can to lower your bad cholesterol levels.
