Almost 4 years ago, Deborah Kennedy, PhD and Chef shared with me her dream to put together this culinary medicine resource. I asked if she planned to include the DASH diet. She said she wanted to and then asked me if I would write the chapter. I said yes, because I want as many health professionals and their patients …and people just like you to know about DASH.

DASH is a food-based approach to good health; it is a prescription for great eating with health benefits. If you are not familiar with DASH and how many areas of health it helps protect, check out Culinary Medicine Part 3 The Diets.

TIP: Click “Look Inside” – after the table of contents, my chapter on the DASH diet appears. You can even download a sample to your Kindle or cloud reader.

US News & World Reports ranked the Mediterranean Diet, The DASH Diet and Flexitarian Diet and the top diets in their annual ranking. Culinary Medicine: Part 3 The Diets includes a chapter on the Mediterranean Diet. A Flexitarian Diet is very similar to both the DASH and Mediterranean Diets – all three emphasis plenty of plants with high quality lean protein choices, and healthy fats.

It’s never too late to start eating the DASH way, try my DASH Diet recipes.
