Publisher's Summary

The Dash diet stands for dietary approaches to stop hypertension. Hypertension, in layman’s terms, means high blood pressure.

If one suffers from constant high blood pressure, it is essential to know that many other disorders stem from it and that participating in the Dash diet may be a good idea. 

The dash diet focuses on a diet rich in nuts, vegetables, rich fruits, low-fat dairy, lean meats, and lots of whole grains making it very easy to follow. The primary concern of dash diets is to drop the sodium intake of its users.

The average American consumes up to a whopping 3,400 mg of sodium a day, more than 1,000 milligrams more than the Dietary Guidelines for Americans suggests, and nearly 2,000 milligrams more than The American Heart Association recommends (Mayo). 

This is a significant issue and causing all kinds of health problems in America. The whole food approach dash diet allows its users to eat as much as they want, with a wide range of choices; all it asks in return is that you stay away from processed and heavily salted food.

One does not need to look far to find the evidence that the whole food approach and the dash diet work!

U.S. News & World Report have placed the dash diet at the top of the list for the eighth year in a row.

Why is it ranked the best die out there you ask?

Well, after consulting many physicians the answer is quite simple. For starters, it works. And, it allows its users to have a balanced diet; thus, it is proven to help with weight loss, while not jeopardizing a person’s balanced diet. 

If this isn’t enough to convince you that the dash diet is great, the dash diet was also ranked number one for heart disease, kidney stones, diabetes, and it also lowers the risk of cancer.

This book includes some breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert recipes that are easy to follow and delicious.

If you or one of your family members has decided to take the plunge and start the dash diet, this book is for you!

Decent recepies

The only reason I got this book was due to receiving a free copy in exchange for an unbiased review but honestly it just was not for me. There were a few decent sounding recipies but some just sounded disgusting just like in any cook book (usually the most healthy ones). My biggest issue was the narrirator due to her loud high piched voice that made it hard to understand some of what she was saying. I do agree with the other review about audible not being the best way to get a cook book though, its just not conveinint to have to register 20 times to wright the recipe you want down when you could just simply look at it.

A collection of Pinterest recipes

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I had never picked up a cookbook on audible before, so I wasn't sure what to expect from this.

I can't speak to how good the food would taste, I didn't make any of them, but some of them sounded really good.

For what it is I think this was done well, but I'm not sure this is a good medium for a cookbook. At least not in this format. The book consists mostly of reading the recipes and a restaurant-style sales pitch. having the step by step instructions printed off so you can review them would probably be better. There is a referenced website with additional materials that probably has this and that would probably be a better choice.

I think this setup could probably be improved on quite a bit if there was a transition to walk through plus a story. basically, make it come across as you're in the kitchen with your grandma and she's walking you through the recipes while telling you what it was like "in her day". if the recipe takes an hour to prep and cook be ready for a long story...

otherwise, this is basically someone reading you a cookbook and the sales pitch for the meal. Not bad, but you can get that from Pinterest.

Eat healthier with these recipes

In trying to eat a bit better, I'm glad to have found these short cookbooks. The cheap price keeps me from feeling too invested in any one book and lets me try several different ones affordably. The clear narration is nice and I can speed up or slow down the recipes to any speed that works for me.

This author is pretty prolific. I decided to give his diet-oriented cookbooks a shot after having good luck with his appliance-oriented cookbooks (crock pots, soup makers, etc).

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
