If you would like to lower your cholesterol level, you will probably need to cook your own meals more often, since many restaurants add heaps of fat and salt to their foods in order to add texture and taste at a low cost. Convenience foods, obviously, are well known for offering bad nutrition and plenty of fat, salt, and sugar.

If you want to lower your cholesterol, avoid all fast-food, convenience, and prepackaged meals.

That's not hard to do, even if you are a dummy in the kitchen. There are lots of very fast and easy ways to ensure that you can whip up tasty and cholesterol-friendly meals - no matter how harried your schedule:

• If you are busy and tired at the end of a long day, a salad and sandwich take less time to put together than it takes to phone the pizza parlor. Wrap some veggies in a tortilla, cut more veggies into a salad, and drizzle the salad with olive oil and lemon juice. Use a mashed avocado or salt-free salsa as the “dressing” on your sandwich. Soups and stir-fries are other kitchen friends of busy people who aren’t very handy in the kitchen.

• Keep fresh ingredients handy and don’t tempt yourself by keeping convenience foods and junk food in your house.

• Choose fresh ingredients - the very freshest you can. Not only is this healthier for you, but you will need less fat and salt in your cooking if your food ingredients are flavorful on their own.

• Find low-fat and cholesterol-friendly recipes in cookbooks and plan to make these recipes. There are many recipe books at your local library - and many of these feature heart-healthy and fast recipes that can make cholesterol-friendly eating a snap. Don’t overlook cookbooks that feature Chinese, Japanese, Raw food, Vegan, and Indian recipes. These are often heart-friendly and contain enough variety to keep you happy with your low-fat diet forever.

• Buy some fresh herbs. Use these to add flavor to your cooking rather than relying on salt. If you must use salt, use only a pinch of the best sea salt you are able to buy.

Cooking to lower your cholesterol is simple. There are a few basic foods that almost anyone can make that can keep your health in good shape.
