Foods to Avoid with High Blood Pressure

8. Pastry

The cakes, cookies, donuts and other delicacies produced on the market are full of sugar and fat. Eating only a traditional serving size could ruin the amount of sugar in all your days and lead to weight gain. To reduce the amount of sugar you get from baked goods while enjoying life, share a dessert with everyone at the table when you go out for dinner. You can also make surprisingly delicious baked goods with sugar substitutes such as apple sauce, dates or stevia at home.

Products such as raw honey, pure maple syrup and coconut sugar are also good substitutes because they are lower on a glycemic scale than white sugar and contain important nutrients, electrolytes and antioxidants.
