I’m a sucker for online quizzes and fun tools. Here’s one of my latest favorites from the Oregon Dairy Council: Rate Your Plate. It’s a tool to help you follow the principles of the DASH Diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension).
Most people know that eating less sodium, found in table salt and many processed foods, helps lower blood pressure. But did you know that eating more fruit, vegetables, and fat-free dairy products can lower your blood pressure just as much? That’s where the DASH Diet comes in.

Fill out the “One Step at a Time” goal form at the end of the quiz, print it out, and schedule an appointment with me to make these goals become a reality. Bring in the completed goal form to your appointment, and I’ll give you a free phone follow-up session!
