home4school Posted June 2, 2009 Share Posted June 2, 2009 :001_huh:Sounds crazy, doesn't it? I went to the dr yesterday about my blood pressure. Turns out it is high, 160/95 in the office yesterday. She put me on 1 rx, did some blood work, and told me to come back in 3 wks bc it would probably take a combo of more than 1 med to get this under control. She did give me a copy of the DASH diet, which had already been posted here to me by a WTMer! Thing is, I also had an abnormal EKG & am going to a Cardiologist today. Seems it could just be the way me body does for an EKG or perhaps I've had a mild heart attack. Here's the thing, I read all the suggestions of how much of this to eat and what to eliminate, but I can't put it into action. Can anyone offer healthy suggestions for breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners? I eat pretty much the same thing everyday. Cheese toast (on white), maybe a turkey sandwich (on white), supper is basic Southern suppers, snacks are where I get my colors (M&Ms!). I don't know what to eat! I don't even know what to drink! She said to decaf, so my response was to buy decaf Pepsi. She said she meant water. Well, I can't just drink nothing but water forever. I have added green tea per TejasMamacita (thanks! its really good), but I make it like Southern iced tea and add sugar. :( Dr said I also had to go decaf on that, w/o sugar. I know y'all can recommend some healthy, tasty meals and drinks so this won't be torture! I want to eat right, but I don't want to eat cardboard. Also, if you could pray for the dx from the cardiologist. I'm hoping I'm just one of those people who give strange EKGs and haven't had a heart attack. Thanks!
