I’ve spent a lot of time over the last few months searching for recipes that are cholesterol friendly and still taste good. I haven’t found a huge amount of meat-based recipes containing foods like beans that actively lower cholesterol, so I tend to add them myself or have them on the side.

8 Cholesterol-Friendly Ingredients That Will Transform Your Salads

I used to really hate salads and I would avoid them at all costs. As far as I was concerned, salads meant strips of bland iceberg lettuce mixed with a few chopped tomatoes, slices of cucumber and some sort of oil and vinegar dressing.

So I like to set myself a bit of a challenge to cook a healthy meal from scratch using whatever’s in our fridge, and have it ready for when he gets home. It doesn’t always turn out brilliantly admittedly – there have been more than a few occasions when my husband has had to fake a smile when I’ve presented him with something that resembles the dog’s dinner!
