The original DASH diet plan (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) was developed to lower blood pressure without medication. Since then, numerous studies have shown that the DASH diet reduces the risk of many diseases, including some kinds of cancer, stroke, heart disease, heart failure, kidney stones, and diabetes. It has been proven to be an effective way to lose weight and become healthier at the same time.

The book will teach followers how they can adapt DASH to gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, and dairy-free eating styles, and will include resources like substitution lists, a grain cooking guide, and basic vegetable cooking charts.

Beets are an amazing addition to your diet because they are packed full of nutrients and deliver a one-two punch of blood-pressure-lowering nutrients. Beets are rich in nitrates, which the body converts into nitric oxide, a compound that relaxes and dilates blood vessels, which means better circulation and lower blood pressure. They are also high in folate and phytochemicals, nutrients that keep levels of homocysteine in check. Vibrant, sweet, and filling, this nutrient rich smoothie is full of protein, vitamin C, calcium, and healthy omega-3 fats making it a quick and easy breakfast for weight loss and heart health. Prepare your taste buds for a unique and distinctively delicious tasting smoothie!
