Make up class invitations inviting everyone to the Control Your Blood Pressure (CYBP) Café.

The “menu” consists of exercise, testing for high blood pressure and samples of the right foods. Set up a table with foods from the DASH diet along with tip sheets on how to lower sodium intake and increase intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, nonfat dairy and nuts. Here are a few ideas for DASH foods:

• A fresh vegetable platter

• Fruit with yogurt dip

• A bowl of nuts (unsalted!)

• Tossed salad

• Whole grain pita pocket triangles

At one end of the table, have a nurse take blood pressure readings. At the other end, you can have a personal trainer demonstrating how to exercise.
