5 Delicious Recipes for National Cholesterol Month

October in National Cholesterol Month – are you aware of your cholesterol level?

Every 7 minutes, someone in the UK will have a heart attack. Every 12 minutes, someone in the UK will have a stroke. Having high cholesterol significantly increases your risk of succumbing to these diseases.

60% of adults in the UK have raised cholesterol – in order to have yours tested, visit your GP. This is especially important to do if you have raised cholesterol running through your family.

 

High cholesterol causes:

  • Eat high levels of saturated fat
  • Smoking
  • Being inactive
  • Having too much body fat

 

Cholesterol reducing solutions:

  • Become more active
  • Quit smoking
  • Maintain a healthy body weight
  • Reduce saturated fat intake. E.g. Butter, lard, biscuits, cakes, cheese, coconut oil, palm oil
  • Extra help may be needed to reduce high cholesterol levels, work with your GP to monitor this
  • Enjoy cholesterol lowering foods. E.g. Liver, chicken, spinach, avocado, ginger, soy protein, dark chocolate, nuts, linseed, oats, salmon, garlic

 

5 delicious and cholesterol friendly recipes:
