Enjoy these quick and delicious low-cholesterol recipes.
Nearly 107 million Americans are believed to have high cholesterol—a condition that can be linked to an increased risk of stroke and heart disease. Although genetics strongly influence cholesterol levels, with just a few minor changes you can make a positive impact on your well-being. Try cutting back on foods that contribute to elevated levels of "bad" LDL cholesterol, such as those high in saturated and hydrogenated fats (trans fats). Consuming plenty of foods high in soluble fiber such as beans, oats and barley, and a variety of fruits and vegetables (many provide soluble fiber), can help keep blood cholesterol within a healthy range.
We know it’s not always easy to keep track of what’s good for you and what isn’t when it comes to bettering your health.
