Try these suggestions for lowering cholesterol, without sacrificing taste.
* Olive oil and olive products
Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E.
* Fat-free yoghurt and other fat-free dairy products
Fat-free yoghurt is a particularly good choice as it is rich in protein, calcium and Lactobacillus microorganisms which may help to lower blood cholesterol levels.
* Antioxidant-rich fruit and vegetables
All fruits and vegetables can help to lower cholesterol and protect the heart. Two groups are particularly useful, namely those fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamin C, or rich in beta-carotene.
* Garlic and other members of the onion family
garlic, spring onions and other onions, can be used to lower cholesterol and protect the heart. Use garlic liberally in cooking and on fresh salads.
