A shopping list for the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension diet includes foods for lowering blood pressure, such as vegetables and fruit. Broccoli, carrots, spinach and sweet potatoes can also be on the list. Pick fresh fruit like bananas, pears, canned fruit or fruit juices.
Whole grains to include are whole-grain pasta, whole-grain rice, whole-grain cereal and 100 percent whole-grain bread. Skinless chicken, salmon and tuna are some meats to shop for. Legumes, seeds and nuts can go on the list, so lentils, kidney beans, almonds and sunflower seeds are good options. Tofu is another excellent choice for this diet's shopping list.
