Barbara (65, divorced, proud grandmother of three grandsons) enjoys life to the max. She plays tennis, does yoga, has joined a cooking club and goes on long-distance trips twice a year. Healthy, tasty food is important for her, so she is quite upset that – after doing so much to keep fit – her blood pressure is on the high side. “Will I have to follow one of those tasteless low-salt diets?” she wonders. “What do I eat when I'm travelling?”
As the supermarket round the corner only has a limited range of dietary products, Barbara seeks out suitable recipes and tips from fellow sufferers on the internet. The sooner she gets her blood pressure down, the better – she wants to stay healthy as she grows older, that’s for sure.
