DASH diet shopping list

The “DASH” diet refers to “Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension.” This diet is designed to promote heart health. The general recommendations are to consume fruit, vegetables and whole grains, select low-fat or fat-free dairy and choose lean protein, and limit saturated fat as well as added sugar. Foods selected should be rich in vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium and magnesium, as well as high in fiber and protein. They should also be limited in sodium.
