Quick Cholesterol-Friendly Meals & Snacks For Busy People

As a mum of a young baby, I now have limited time to prepare meals. But I still want to make sure I keep my cholesterol down. So my weekday meals are currently based on really simple and minimal cholesterol-friendly ingredients that I can put together as quickly as possible.

Here are my favourite quick and simple meals that contain cholesterol-lowering foods and are really quick to prepare (many take just a few minutes):-

  • High fibre wholegrain toast (see this post) with avocado slices
  • Porridge with apple slices & flaked almonds
  • High fibre cereal (see this post) with sultanas & semi-skimmed milk
  • ‘Alpen No Added Sugar’ with low fat natural yoghurt
  • Seeded high fibre toast with banana slices & nut butter *
  • Rolled oats soaked overnight with semi-skimmed milk & grated apple
  • Baked beans on high fibre toast with seeds sprinkled on top

Lunches

  • High fibre bread sandwich (see this post) with turkey slices, mustard & salad
  • Wholemeal pitta bread with houmous, falafels & avocado slices
  • Seeded wholegrain bagel with smoked salmon & avocado
  • Canned bean/barley & veg soup with less than 1.5g saturated fat per 100g
  • Baked beans on high fibre toast with seeds sprinkled on top
  • Microwaved sweet potato with tuna, avocado & 1 tbsp mayonnaise
