Surely you have heard the saying: “BREAKFAST IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY”. Everybody has heard it, all the mothers have told us as we have grown up and once we have grown up, our doctor has kept telling us so that we can take care of our health. Now, how many of us really follow those directions and eat a proper breakfast every day? More than a few.
However, when we have grown older and health problems such as high blood pressure have started to arise, that need to eat better is not only a doctor’s advice, it is a must. Having blood pressure levels that are too high is a serious risk to our health, which also means that we have to forget about many of the things we used to eat “unhealthy” every day.
Below, for those of you who have high blood pressure and are not clear about what you can or cannot eat at breakfast to avoid excessive intake of saturated fat, we are going to give you a series of simple recipes that will help you cope better with the problem.
