Foods permitted in a low-cholesterol diet

When cholesterol becomes an enemy to be taken into account by our organism, the first thing we must take care of is our diet.

By choosing the right foods, we can curb and reduce cholesterol and Caña Nature has some suggestions that can be of great help to you.

Guacamole and salmorejo to combat cholesterol

At Caña Nature we offer you 3 guacamole options: the traditional one, the one rich in vitamin A and the low-calorie one.

All of them have the advantage of having avocado as the main ingredient, a food that among its main properties is low LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. In addition, it has monounsaturated fats, considered as “good fats”.

Salmorejo can also be a good choice for a low-cholesterol diet. It is not only a fresh dish with important natural properties such as vitamin C and E, lycopene and several minerals. It also contains tomato among its basic ingredients, which helps to lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels.

If you want to take even more advantage of the benefits of tomato in relation to cholesterol, remember that Caña Nature also has grated tomato available, an ideal option for toast, which you can add to your new diet.

Gazpacho and its anti-cholesterol benefits

Gazpacho deserves a special mention, which you will also find available at Caña Nature. Thanks to a combination of key ingredients, it is particularly useful for lowering cholesterol.

First of all, gazpacho has ingredients that stand out for their diuretic properties, something that will help you if you want to reduce high cholesterol.

In addition, the recipe also contains tomatoes, which, as mentioned above, can offer further help in lowering “bad” cholesterol.

If your cholesterol is related to being overweight, it is also important to take care of your arteries. Thanks to the vasodilator effect of garlic, you can have better control of your blood pressure.

On the other hand, gazpacho has a satiating effect, which means that you will generally reduce your intake of other foods. For this reason, it is a very common dish in weight loss diets.

Other foods that help you reduce cholesterol

If you want to maintain a low-cholesterol diet, the ideal is to choose a variety of healthy foods, so that you can take advantage of all their properties and nutritional benefits.

In addition to the foods we have recommended from Caña Nature, you can enrich your diet with all kinds of food products. Choosing the right ones can help you to maintain a healthier life, leaving out the risks of high cholesterol.

  • Foods with fibre: Include wholemeal foods in your diet to increase the fibre in your body and reduce the presence of fats.
  • More pulses: Your diet to keep cholesterol low will be more useful if you include pulses such as lentils or chickpeas, although always in moderation.
  • Nuts: Nuts not only provide fibre, they also contain monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which increase the so-called “good” HDL cholesterol. However, keep their consumption under control, as they are often high in calories.
  • Milk and dairy products: Very useful for keeping cholesterol low, especially if you choose products such as fat-free white cheese or natural yoghurt.
  • Meat and fish: You can also supplement your diet with white meats such as turkey and chicken, as well as fish. You will achieve a varied and healthy diet, as well as keeping cholesterol under control.
