6 Simple Cholesterol-Friendly Ways To Use Up Your Leftover Christmas Turkey

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably spent the last few days – actually make that weeks – eating like there’s no tomorrow. I’ve always been a massive advocate of eating what you want on holiday, and I definitely count the Christmas period as a holiday.

Cholesterol friendly margarines

What are the best margarines/spreads for a cholesterol diet?

I’ll start this blog post by saying that, since I started my cholesterol-lowering plan, I’ve massively reduced the amount of butter and other spreads in my diet. One reason is because a lot of them are high in saturated fat, which can increase cholesterol, and the other reason is because the meals and snacks I now eat a lot of don’t need butter or margarine (although I still have butter in my 20% time – more on that later).
