My husband has been put on the DASH Diet.  Both of us could stand to eat healthier.  I cook most of our meals and use whole grains, fresh ingredients and try to watch proportions, but it doesn’t seem to be enough.  So I plan on reworking recipes I find.  I hate to make the same thing over and over, and if there is a long list of ingredients it makes my head spin.  My idea here is to keep track of the changes I make to recipes.  That way if they turn out good I have a record and to share those changes.

Here is an example of what the DASH Diet is from dashdiet.org: The DASH diet eating plan is a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, low fat or nonfat dairy. It also includes grains, especially whole grains; lean meats, fish and poultry; nuts and beans. It is high fiber and low to moderate in fat. It is a plan that follows US guidelines for sodium content. In addition to lowering blood pressure, the DASH eating plan lowers cholesterol and makes it easy to lose weight. It is a healthy way of eating, designed to be flexible enough to meet the lifestyle and food preferences of most people. And, it contains all the healthy foods from the Mediterranean diet.
