Recipe ideas for pregnant lady with high blood pressure

eviemichael | Apr 16, 201403:12 AM

Hi all. Well, I just got some bad news that I have high blood pressure and I'm 21 weeks pregnant. I'm on medication for it, but I also need/want to eat healthily so I can handle this holistically as well.

I know spices and lemon juice help with flavor.
I'm making a list of flavorful recipes with focus on legumes, veggies, and fish.

Here's my list so far:

-Cold broad bean salad with fresh peppers, tomatoes, onion, dill, parsley & mint.

-Fava (Greek yellow split peas)

-Chicken breast with homemade salsa & guacamole

-Briam (Greek mix of veggies, tomato, & different herbs)

-Stewed okra in tomato sauce

-Baked fallafel

-Chana Masala

-Indian curried lentils

-Quinoa-chicken salad or quinoa-shrimp salad

-whole wheat pasta w/fresh tomatoes

-cold pasta salad with broccoli

-roasted fish

-fish cakes w/lots of veggies and spices and herbs

-veggie omelet


-roast goat

-rabbit stew

Does anyone have any other suggestions for me to add? I am not looking for any wintery, stew-type dishes, since it's getting hot here already.

Thanks so much in advance!
