The FlavorDoctor Diet
Salt – it is a magical mineral that preserves our food, helps keep our gums healthy, makes icy roads safer, and gives us that radiant skin we always dream about. A certain amount of salt may add flavor to that heart-healthy salad or make that juicy steak taste just a little bit better, but too often we eat salt in our food without knowing or considering the consequences. Nearly one in three Americans suffers from high blood pressure, partially due to the excessive consumption of salt. The excessive consumption of salt can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, and damage to the brain, kidneys, and other vital organs. Since our bodies need a small portion, avoiding dietary salt altogether is not a viable solution; limiting the amount of salt in our food is. Life is a marvelous gift, and it is up to us to live it to its healthiest if we want to live it to its fullest.One doesn't have to be a dedicated marathon runner to live a healthier life –just be wiser. The FlavorDoctor Diet was written with that in mind. It presents the latest in nutritional science, along with advice in a clear, practical language.
The simple but delicious recipes contained herein were chosen from a medical perspective by Dr. Chad Rhoden, author of Bringing Down High Blood Pressure, along with his physician father, Dr. Rick Rhoden, and contributing dietitian Suzanna Rula.
