I’ve always felt that the best way to start and maintain a cholesterol-friendly diet is not to completely overhaul your existing diet, but instead stick to what you normally eat and gradually make small tweaks to your meals over time. This includes making simple adjustments, like replacing white bread with wholemeal bread, as well as incorporating more cholesterol-lowering foods like oats and beans into your meals.
I’ve been doing this over the last two years and it has helped me to lower my cholesterol and keep it low. I still eat meals I’ve always loved, like spaghetti meatballs, chicken burgers and tacos, but I now use recipes that are lower in saturated fat, include cholesterol-lowering foods and still taste great.
I’d like to show you how easy it is to do this, to help you start and maintain a more heart healthy diet. So if you would like advice on how you could tweak your favourite everyday meals, then please fill out the form below and I’ll email you back some suggestions. You can include a few examples of each meal, but please write brief summaries rather than detailed ingredient lists, for example, ‘chicken curry, spaghetti bolognese, fish and chips’. I look forward to hearing from you!
