The DASH diet was developed by the The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). Studies have shown that nutrients such as potassium, calcium, protein, and fiber are crucial to fending off or fighting high blood pressure. You don’t have to track each one, though. Just emphasize the foods you’ve always been told to eat (fruits, veggies, whole grains, lean protein, and low-fat dairy), while shunning those we’ve grown to love (calorie- and fat-laden sweets and red meat). Top it all off by cutting back on salt, and voilà! This diet is similar in style to other popular diets you may have heard of, such as the TLC diet, mediterranean diet, and the Mayo Clinic diet.
Rigorous studies show DASH can lower blood pressure, which if too high can trigger heart disease, heart failure, and stroke. (In fact, the name DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension—hypertension being the medical term for high blood pressure.) It’s also been shown to increase “good” HDL cholesterol and decrease “bad” LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, a fatty substance that in excess has been linked to heart disease. Overall, DASH reflects the medical community’s widely accepted definition of a heart-healthy diet—it's heavy on fruits and vegetables and light on saturated fat, sugar, and salt.

DO NOT PAY FOR THIS
Most if not all of these recipes are copied from the Mayo Clinic's free website. In some cases the app developers left out ingredients or steps in the directions. Other people have pointed out that it seems like a lot of desserts and not many main-dish meals. This is very true and I just figured out why: when they copied the free recipes off the Internet into their paid app, they never got past "C" on the list of dinner recipes. This becomes obvious if you filter it to only show dinner. This is a big scam and I too wish I could have my money back.
Chaotic and barely helpful
This is just a chaotic jumble of heart-healthy recipes. The recipes are alphabetized by name, but there's search or sort function. There's no way to personalize or keep track of what you're eating day to day, no way to tally portions, or servings of things-- even salt!-- which you're supposed to be limiting. This is the electronic version of those cheap recipe booklets found in the grocery checkout aisle. Better than nothing but it could have been do much more.
I wish I had read the reviews...
Overpriced, under-delivering, unhelpful, need I say more? I thought I was buying a guide for the diet not a collection of copied recipes from the Mayo Clinic guidelines. If you want to convert the recipes to a shopping list, you have to buy another add-on app. Of the many apps I have purchased, this is the first negative review I have written.
