    I've been looking around for some recipes that focus on foods that lower blood pressure, so i can try making them, but also, so I can share them with my Mom. Many of the recipes I found use unusual ingredients that i don't have on hand, and probably won't buy, so I kept looking, and I found this article by Reader's Digest. The recipes seem manageable, and look and sound attractive.

    One of the major ways your can change your diet to help lower blood pressure is by cutting down on your salt intake.

    You can make almost any recipe more blood pressure friendly by omitting or reducing the amount of salt you use. Remember that sodium comes in many forms though; things like chicken stock, canned soups, bacon, deli meats, and condiments can have an extremely high salt content, so read the labels and look for low sodium options where available.

    Try replacing salt with different spices, herbs, and garlic for flavour. It's also be beneficial to cut down on the amount of fat you use while cooking.

    You don't have to buy any weird ingredients :) just stay away from the prepackaged and processed foods as much as possible and substitute low-sodium options where you can.

    Definitely agree on the getting rid of salt. That's what my Dad did right after he got a scare of having a stroke. He cut down on the salt completely and stayed away from fried foods.

    I would also suggest cutting down on the sugar especially if you have a sedentary lifestyle, as having excess sugars in your body not being used as energy will just be stored as fats.

    Cutting back on sugar is a good idea, and not just because it can be stored as fat. My blood pressure saw a significant improvement by reducing salt and sugar intake. Also, taken a moment every day or even as often as possible to clear your head and just breath can have an impact. Reducing stress can be a big part of reducing high blood pressure numbers just as diet is.

    Yes please I offered to pay my players subs too, but luckily they were all OK with it. Nobody would have adopted at all though if it wasnt for GM content sharing.
