5 Meal Plans That Could Help Reduce Cholesterol

Choosing meals that are healthy for your cholesterol levels can be a tricky business. There is good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. Determining which foods have the right balance to promote a healthy body can be difficult. Luckily, there are some staple foods that you can count on when developing a meal plan that is effective at reducing bad cholesterol. Below, you will find five delicious meals that will aid you in keeping your cholesterol low.

Salmon

Salmon is a tremendously beneficial source of nutrition. This fish does more than help lower cholesterol. It contains many helpful oils and vitamins that benefit the heart and mind. Baked or grilled salmon fillets with just one teaspoon of olive oil makes for a tasty entrée. A splash of lemon adds a mouth-watering final touch. Any type of low-sodium vegetable makes a perfect side-dish for the meal. Pearl barley or kale prepared in sterol-enriched margarine is an optimal choice. Fill up one tall glass of fat-free milk to complete the dish.

Spaghetti

Spaghetti with meatballs, when prepared properly, can assist in the fight against cholesterol. Who says that you cannot still eat heartily? Boil whole-wheat pasta, and make your meatballs from extra-lean ground turkey. Mix ground oats, egg substitute, and minced garlic into your meatballs before you begin browning. Be sure to use a low-sodium pasta sauce. For a side-salad, prepare traditional mixed greens with 1 tablespoon of low-fat balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

Fish and chips

Fish and chips are sure to be a child’s favorite. Cut either cod or tilapia into strips. Roll these strips in yellow cornmeal and seasoned bread crumbs. For extra zest, drizzle the strips with malt vinegar. For the chips, slice one potato into several thin strips. Coat the strips with olive oil before baking them in the oven. As an additional side item, you may wish to serve steamed broccoli or unsweetened applesauce.

Black Bean Burritos

For the nights that call for a fiesta, try black bean burritos. Combine half a cup of sautéed black beans with salsa, minced onions, and a pinch of chili powder. Top the stuffing with cooked brown rice. Wrap your ingredients in a whole-wheat tortilla. Add shredded, low-fat cheese to finish off your creation. Baked tortilla chips make the perfect Spanish side-item.

Veggie Burger

The family consistently on the go typically has very little time to put into a meal. The veggie burger provides the optimal healthy solution. Boca vegetarian burgers are cholesterol friendly and are easy to prepare. They can be grilled or microwaved. Place your Boca burger on one whole-wheat hamburger bun with one tomato slice, lettuce, and blue cheese. The results are delicious. One ear of boiled corn with sterol-rich margarine completes your meal in minutes.
