My Review

High blood pressure is a serious matter.  I’m in my late 40′s and I don’t have an issue with it, but if I did, you can be sure that I would take every step possible to control it with my diet.  I don’t always eat or crave the best food for me, but I do make an effort to eat healthy food a good part of the time.

I was excited to review this book so that I can learn how to make better food choices for me and my family.  Dr. Janet thoroughly explains high blood pressure and does it in a way we can all understand.

There are many helpful lists/charts such as:

  • Supermarket Salt Shockers
  • Ten Surprisingly Simple Tips for Cutting Back on Your Intake of Salt
  • Potassium Power Foods
  • Ten Tips for Adding Potassium Into Your Day
  • Magnesium Power Foods
  • Calcium Power Foods
  • Ten Simple Stress-Busters
  • Sample of Meal and Exercise Plan

There are also healthy recipes in the back of the book.

Since this book arrived, I go back to the lists (above) when making my grocery shopping list.  I feel inspired to buy more foods rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium and eliminate the higher sodium junk that can creep into my diet.  I honestly love the way I feel when I eat better and it really does help you shed those unwanted pounds.  Ultimately, I want a healthy and fit family, so I’m grateful for the tips and strategies in this book.

Dr. Janet let me share one of her recipes with you!  I made this guacamole last week and Dave and I enjoyed it with baby carrots and Pita chips!

    That recipe sounds great Jane. I see it’s got a little kick to it! Thankfully, my bp is good for now. I am concerned about the excess sugar that I crave! Sounds like a great book with some healthy recipes.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with
    the same comment. Is there any way you can remove
    people from that service? Cheers!
