Foods to Avoid with High Blood Pressure

2. Pre-Made Soups

Many pre-made soups in supermarket aisles are filled with salt to highlight the aromas of cooked vegetables and pasta. When cooking, the salt content in the soup becomes a little more concentrated when the water boils. And of course there is no way to rinse out the soup before eating.

A better option is to make a soup from scratch or look for labels that advertise “low sodium” or “low salt”. However, be sure to read the nutritional information on the back, as sodium is reduced compared to the normal version of this product, it can still be too salty for people with high blood pressure.
