A lot: With high blood pressure, you want to watch your salt with food. With gout, you want to watch foods that can cause increased uric acid- beef and pork (especially the organ meats and the highly processed, such as sausages), yellow cheeses and beer. So look to dairy, vegetables and fruit. And look for leaner white meat such as chicken, turkey and fish.
