I understand what you mean about depression. It took me to get medical help before I could get started, and finding SparkPeople and the support provided here is a very definite plus. Anyone who feels they must have something fried, or even if you make your own salad dressings or marinades, should check out Trader Joe's grapeseed oil. It's better to use than canola oil and has a higher flash point than olive oil for frying. It has a nice light flavor, and It's also good for your heart. I mix mine with balsamic vinegar for the dressing. It's great.
Thank You all for getting me to go again, when one suffers from depression its sometimes hard to get out of Bed

Why isn't it allowed to eat an occassional meal like chickenfingers fried in Cranola Oil and one small order of fries without salt? I have a place that fries only in Cranola and will not put any salt on either for me. Richard email@example.com
Great tips and good reminders here! I too am eating fresh salads, fresh veggies and fruits and healthy oils like olive and flax and blood pressure is staying normal! Good healthy fruits and veggies not only are more healthy for us but they taste better too!
I have high blood pressure too, but I've changed my diet to primarily fresh fruits and vegetables, cut out all the caffine and now it's in the 120/80 range almost always. It only gets high now if I allow myself to get worried.
