Lunches for Lowering Blood Pressure

Whole grains, low-fat dairy products, nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables are all major players in the DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension), an eating plan developed by the National Institutes of Health and proven to lower blood pressure. Many of the suggested lunch foods, like spinach, are also rich in potassium and magnesium, two minerals that help promote healthy blood pressure levels.
