Embarking on a healthy diet program can be an exciting way for Elderly and Senior individuals to connect with family members or caregivers. Having health goals through dieting can help your loved one stay optimistic and following a diet can help you and your loved one socialize over what meals to prepare in the coming days. One diet that can provide guaranteed results for better heart health is the DASH Diet. DASH, which stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, is an easy to follow plan that focuses on eating the right foods at the right portions. While many diets are hard to stick with because they completely ban certain food groups, the DASH Diet doesn’t have any limitations. The diet emphasizes low saturated fat, cholesterol, and total fat. Foods include whole grains, fruits, vegetables, low-fat milk products, moderate amounts of fish, poultry, and nuts, and a reduced amount of red meat, sweets, sugar, and sodium. Check out a week’s worth of sample recipes to get started on the DASH Diet here.
