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
-Indian curried lentils
-Quinoa-chicken salad or quinoa-shrimp salad
-whole wheat pasta w/fresh tomatoes
-cold pasta salad with broccoli
-fish cakes w/lots of veggies and spices and herbs
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!
