Dash diet has been proved to reduce blood pressure.:surfweb: I am giving you two dash recipes which I usually prepare:

1. Apple corn muffins- A Bread recipes:stir:

2 cups all-purpose (plain) flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup fat-free milk
2 egg whites
1 apple, peeled and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup corn kernels

Preheat the oven to 425 F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper or foil liners.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir to blend evenly. In a separate bowl, combine the milk and egg whites. Add the apple and corn, whisk to mix evenly and pour over the flour mixture. Stir lightly until all are slightly moist. The batter will be lumpy. Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full and bake about 30 minutes. Tops will spring back when touched.

2. Spicy Seasoning Mix

1-1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1-1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon basil, dried
1-1/2 teaspoon thyme, dried

Mix all ingredients together. Store in an airtight container. Use in meat, poultry, fish, or vegetable dishes. Try replacing the salt in the salt shaker with this mix and use at the table.
