For two years, they've been recommending Sandra Nowlan's path-breaking book which shows how tasty and appealing the DASH diet can be.
Now Sandra Nowlan is back with a collection of recipes for simple, quick-to-prepare and tasty dinner dishes.

DASH is an alternative to drugs for anyone experiencing hypertension. DASH, which stands for Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension, was developed by independent researchers at the US National Institutes of Health. Following the DASH approach was demonstrated to have the same impact on blood pressure as the pharmaceutical industry's medications. Health professionals who are aware of the DASH research findings are DASH's strongest advocates, and thousands of Canadians now benefit from following this approach.

About the Author

SANDRA NOWLAN is a prize-winning cook, author and food scientist with degrees from Acadia, Dalhousie and Cornell universities.


"The philosophy of 'good eating' involves an educational
process. Once you understand the health benefits of
natural, unrefined foods, you can enjoy them in your
diet. The recipes in both of my DASH cookbooks have
been thoughtfully created to be healthy but
enjoyment of the flavours, textures and presentation of
the dishes is my top priority. You can indulge yourself
using these recipes while knowing that you are doing
your body a favour."
