Dinner Elf adds the DASH Diet to our menu

For the 8th year in a row, health experts from US News & World Report have ranked the DASH Diet as the best diet overall.  Research has shown that the DASH Diet can quickly lower blood pressure and is effective for weight loss and lowering cholesterol.  Not only is that awesome, but it’s also associated with lower risk of:

  • several types of cancer
  • heart disease
  • stroke
  • heart failure
  • kidney stones
  • developing diabetes
  • depression

You’re probably thinking, “Is it going to be like eating rabbit food?”

Nope! The DASH diet is a flexible, easy to follow, and plant-focused diet; think of DASH as an Americanized version of the popular Mediterranean diet.

It emphasizes:

  • fruits and vegetables
  • nuts
  • low-fat and non-fat dairy
  • lean meats, fish, and poultry
  • mostly whole grains
  • a low to moderate amount of heart-healthy fats

It limits:

  • sodium
  • saturated fats
  • sugar
