Dear Nurse Annie,
My blood pressure is staying down with pills, but my wife thinks I could do better. What should I be eating? I like meat and lots of it.
What to eat is a good question. We are all looking for way to eat better and still enjoy our food.
Saturated fat: (Meat) Make every bite count. The body has to fight off saturated fat and can make bad decisions about storing it. So we have heart disease.
Ocean Fish: Add some of this. Look for ways you enjoy fish. (Not fried).
Vegetables: Eat lots. Explore new ways. Raw. Chopped. Steamed. Just enjoy lots of fiber.
Fruit: Eat a lot.
Grains: IF you like grains eat whole grains. Mushed grains are not whole grains no matter what the box claims.
Let me know what you think.
