Dash Diet- Day 2 - Salmon

DASH DIET Day  # 2


This is the second DASH diet I have worked on. The breakfast takes a little more time but can be made quickly. The breakfast has orange juice and you will need to be careful on the amount. The juice has a high calorie count. I suggest that you measure everything until you get to the point you can eyeball amounts. A scale and a measuring cup is you friend. Most people are not aware of the REAL portions you should eat. The 1200 diet has no toast and the 1600 has only one slice and the amount of the jam is reduced. Make sure you have you milk. If you do not like milk or cannot drink it try to find something you can drink that is not high in sodium. I usually do not have a snack but it it is good to have the ingredients around in case you have a hungry day. If you limit the amount of food too much you will difficult to stay on the diet.
