DASH Diet for Vegetarians

The DASH diet  is a suitable diet for vegetarians, it was originally created based on a vegetarian diet because vegetarians tend to have lower blood pressures. The diet used in the research that demonstrated the efficacy of DASH did include animal protein foods, such as meat, poultry, fish, and dairy foods.

But health benefits can be met using vegetable sources of protein and dairy foods. DASH includes lots of fruits and vegetables, low fat dairy foods, and limited added fats and oils. vege medley

These recommendations are the same for vegetarians and fish, meat, and poultry eaters. In order to meet your DASH food goals for meats we suggest you substitute with the nuts, seeds and legumes category. Simply add your recommended servings of meat to your recommended servings of legumes and aim for that goal every day.
