What to eat to lower blood pressure, control diabetes, and to bring down stroke risk

view original post

Everybody should aim to eat less than a teaspoon of salt per day, which could be hidden in takeaways, for instance.

Salt can also be hidden in ready meals, crisps, nuts, cakes, biscuits, and processed meat.

Instead of using salt to flavour home-made dishes, better alternatives include: fresh ginger, lemon juice, chillis, or dried herbs and spices.

In addition to eating more healthily, it’s also critical to control portion sizes.
