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.
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.
