Low Cholesterol Cooking
If you have high cholesterol, make friends with fish. It's a perfect source of low-fat protein and is an easy-to-cook low cholesterol food. For these reasons, most cardiologists and heart experts strongly recommend switching from red meat to fish in order to reduce your intake of dietary cholesterol and saturated fat. Saturates (including trans-fats) are strongly implicated in atherosclerosis (clogging of arteries). The omega-3 fatty acids in oily fish are believed to increase HDL (good cholesterol) levels in the blood, thus reducing the risk of atherosclerotic heart disease.
