The pharmacy close to my house recently distributed booklets on dietary advice. My husband brought home one.I thought this was laudable on their part for creating awareness to eat healthy and live healthy.This was all about taking the right steps to prevent hypertension. It’s always good to be aware and take necessary actions to avoid being a victim to this deadly illness.
Eating food with low sodium helps to reduce blood pressure ,which is the major cause for heart problems. A lot of pre-cooked and processed food have high sodium. ,We try to avoid eating them as much as possible . Another helpful hint I gathered from this booklet was, to forget salt and add more herbs and spices in the food . Or switch to cooking food with chili,ginger and lemon for flavouring, instead of salt . Oh! Dear! I have a penchant for salty foods. So to begin with, I must
work on that..
It’s about time I took these guidelines seriously. ’Why don’t you do some walking Mom,’ , suggested my daughter , when I showed concern about my weight. But then again, just the mere thought of running on the threadmill, makes me go weak at the knees..
