I listen to my dad talk about his medical problems. He has diabetes now in his later years, but he seems to talk most about his blood pressure problems. I asked him the other day if he still gets to enjoy a beer every once in awhile. His answer to me was that he does every so often, but he sometimes has to stop because he starts to feel bad thanks to high blood pressure problems. It makes you stop and think about what you might need to do ahead of time to prevent this from happening to you.
My sister and her partner certainly did something about it by taking on a vegan diet (thanks Do Coop for the tips). I didn’t really think they would last, but they have been following a vegan diet for months now. Of course, neither of them like to cook. If you’re going to start eating foods that lower blood pressure and help keep you healthy in other ways, you’re going to have to cook. Three of the top foods that can help you if you have high blood pressure are blueberries, avocados and prunes. You can literally make an entire grocery list using the rest of the foods that can help you with blood pressure issues.
