As recently posted, I have slightly elevated blood pressure. Allegedly.
My problem though is that there are only so many things I can do about it. I don't drink a lot of caffeine, I don't have a weight problem, I don't overdo it with alcohol (often), I get my sleep, and so on. I'm not perfect, but gee whiz, I don't want to have to be!
One thing I can do is give up one of the great loves of my life: salt. That just makes sense since we had noticed that meat substitutes wree often sodium-heavy. I don't like to think of it as a break-up though, more of an agreement to see other people.
My first great find is the line of Mr Spice products which, IIRC, I came across at a Loblaw's store.
This stuff is great for all the things it doesn't have:
• No Cholesterol
• No MSG
• No Preservatives
• Gluten Free
• Wheat Free
• Dairy Free
• No HVP
• No Sulfites
• All Natural
• Salt Free
• Fat Free
• No HFCS
Nice laundry list. And yet, for all that, it's quite tasty with no icky aftertaste. Click on the pic to go to the Mr Spice site and see the various sauces that they offer.
AS for me, I'm going to enjoy it until, of course, someone comes around to tell me i need to stop eating so much damn potassium.
