I thought it worthwhile to add this new forum because most of us either have worthwhile info to share or we come across good stuff from time to time.

I saw this link on the Express newspaper site today

15 Foods to Avoid with High Blood Pressure

Several of my favourites are blacklisted thumbs_down

Oh sod it, I don't intend to change my ways. Fiona needs my life insurance payout to clear the mortgage big_laugh

I am already working on cutting out cheese, oranges, chocolate, red wine and reducing caffeine due to problems with migraines. I don't think I could manage to cut out more but looking at that list I don't eat any of it anyway! I'm sure Fiona would rather have you than the insurance!

I just eat what I want and take the blood pressure tablets- my BP has been boringly stable for 10 years now.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

That states that 'bacon is mostly fat'.  Well, yes it is in America, they only seem to have the very thin, very fatty, streaky bacon.  The obviously have never heard of decent dry cure back.  I do dislike articles like that, they make me very cross as some people will believe every statement as a fact.

I'll try that again!

I rarely eat bacon but earlier this evening I fried some dry cure bacon to put in my lunchtime sandwich tomorrow. I was amazed that no fat or water came out during cooking.

When it comes to unhealthy food, I try to balance it with healthy fruit and veg, so if I have fruit, I can also have cake or a pork pie...

sod it, eat everything in moderation - life is too short as it is, we need to enjoy it. (now I know that comment is a little blase for those with dietary problems, but you know what I mean).

I am with you. Everything in moderation for those without food allergies! I am fed up being told what I can and can't eat which is based on research that constantly changes! We eat lots of fresh fruit and veg in our house so a little of the "naughty" stuff surely cannot do any harm. I enjoy food and cooking and you know the saying "never trust a skinny cook"!

Yup me too! Sauerkraut is a fermented food and that has other important contributions to the diet. Red meat is a difficult one because it depends on its source. Let's face it, anything raised solely in a barn without good access to some nice green grass is not worth eating and is bad for the animal and bad for you. Grass fed beef is far better for you than the industrialised muck (article here). There that's what I think, mind you I don't see much beef around here anyway whistle

Most of the food on the list was pre-packed food anyway, if you make your own you are not as likely to add as much salt as they do to those kinds of rubbish.

wave  I totally agree.  I eat a lot of fruit and vegetables every single day, so if I want to eat  or drink something naughty I do. It does not happen very often and anyway guidelines keep changing!!!!    I also do not eat processed or pre packed food very often where I agree there is probably lots of salt.  I control the amount of salt in the food I cook.  Eat sensibly and everything in moderation ( apart from wine of course  big_laugh ) is the answer

 Mind you my BP is good because I am on tablets.  whistle   It used to worry me having to be on medication all the time, but they it keeps me healthy and I have no worries about my BP.

Food to avoid in France ......Andouille, it is a disgusting sausage thing made from the animal bits normal people wouldn't eat. The smell is appalling! Not too keen on the idea of Tete de veau either but was pleased when someone near me ordered it it wasn't a calfs head!
