After all, the summer season is too short … wouldn’t you rather be sweating from the summer sun than sweating over what to serve your impromptu guests? With these 'Take 5' recipes, they’ll think your “spontaneity” is genius!

  1. Naan Pizza – Naanza is a quick and no fuss pizza that “reinvents fast food”. The recipe calls for Clover Leaf’s Sundried Tomato & Basil Flavoured Tuna with goat cheese and served on naan bread.

  2. Tuna & Pear Melt is a delectable ‘Take 5’ hors d’oeuvre of Clover Leaf’s Dill & Lemon Flavoured Tuna, sliced pear, walnut and cheese, broiled on sliced baguette.
  3. Mediterranean Salmon ‘n’ Tomato Cups is a petite and delicious ‘Take 5’ salmon appetizer with our Skinless Boneless Atlantic Salmon blended with sour cream and herb, and delicately scooped into hollowed campari tomatoes.

Here are a couple more quick and equally easy recipes that use Clover Leaf’s Flavoured Tuna family of products –

  1. Middle Eastern Mini Pita Bites is a mouth watering appetizer using Clover Leaf's Garlic and Hot Pepper Flavoured Tuna, and served on pita topped with grilled garden vegetables and baba ghanouj.
  2. Thai Tuna Dip is a delicious blend of South East Asian flavours. It uses Clover Leaf’s Spicy Thai Chili Flavoured Tuna with turmeric, cream cheese and other spices, and can be made a day ahead for your convenience. It goes well with crudités.

Nutrition Packs a Punch for Lowering High Blood Pressure

If you have high blood pressure, nutrition is one of the most important weapons in your arsenal to combat it. When you limit your sodium intake – found predominantly in ready-to-eat processed/packaged foods, eating out, canned foods and condiments – you’ve conquered half the battle.

The DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet which has been shown in research to lower blood pressure consistently, emphasizes plenty of fruits, veggies, low-fat dairy foods, and reduced saturated fat. This plan also includes whole grains, fish, poultry, and nuts.
