I bet it started out that way, it is what we call brawn.  Ah Andouille, I have managed to avoid that, thankfully.

I'll try that again!

Wanted to apologise Danny, realised that I wasn't really addressing what you set out to do which is to really look at food to help avoid high blood pressure.sorry. Note to self: Must not answer some posts whilst tiredroll_eyes

Obviously reducing salt intake is one of them, and one of my danger areas for that - beside the fact I make my own bacon and preserve my own food which can involve a lot of salt - is the stock cube. Stock cubes are often high in salt and add more than we need. I think also what people don't realise is how high salt content can get disguised in foods and is higher than we need, and so avoiding the pre-packaged food is one of the best ways.

Other than that, drink hibiscus tea and yellow peas, to reduce pressure. Beetroots to improve circulation, garlic to relax blood vessels and best of all dark chocolate. cheers I look at this site to see what the newest topics of research are and how the studies are faring up
