High Blood Pressure recipes
High blood pressure or hypertension is more and more prevalent these days, especially among younger people. Apart from stress and obesity, one of the reasons for this is excessive sodium and salt intake. Most people find it difficult to limit the amount of salt in their cooking, thinking it will affect the taste of their favourite dishes.
The recipes in this section have been designed to use minimum salt yet retaining its taste and flavour. In most of the recipes we have measured and used the minimum amount of salt required to make a dish appetizing, however you can decrease or increase the salt according to the daily sodium limit prescribed to you. However in other recipes, you can follow a thumb rule – 1/8 to ¼ teaspoon of salt for a serving of 4. Ranging from breakfast options, and soups and Salads to rotis, subzis and international cuisine, the recipes use low-sodium ingredients, limited amount of oil and are devoid of high-sodium processed foods.
Cabbage and Dal Paratha , Dahi Bhindi , Jowar Pyaz ki Roti , Mili Jhuli Subzi and many more recipes are a true treasure for hypertensives. For those who want to please their palate for pickle, can try Carrot Pickle and Green Chilli Pickle .
So tuck the salt out of sight, and start reducing your sodium intake. Eat healthy to keep your blood pressure in check.
