Introduction

The foods you eat and the way you move your body have a huge impact on your health. Cholesterol blood levels can be reduced quite easily with some basic changes. And the best part is that the foods that reduce cholesterol and triglycerides are delicious and easy to cook.

Believe it or not, diets can be too low in fat. Your body needs fat to transport nutrients around the body, to maintain a consistent body temperature, to protect your organs, and to provide quick energy. If you aren’t eating enough fat, you may be more tired, develop more infections and illnesses, and become deficient in vitamins and minerals.

All of the recipes in this book have less than 100 mg of cholesterol per serving. Most have much less than that, and many have none at all. You have the option of using butter or plant sterol margarines in these recipes; all of the nutrition calculations are figured using butter.

As with all health and nutrition advice, check with your doctor before changing your diet or adding exercise. Practice moderation in all things. If you eat a colorful diet, exercise moderately, and don’t smoke, you will increase your odds of living a healthy life.

And remember that medical research is always discovering new information. Many people are tempted to throw up their hands and forget the whole thing when they hear that a food once thought good for you is not. But science doesn’t proceed in a
