Cholesterol is a scary word but there is good news

Cholesterol is a scary word for a lot of us but the good news is that you have control over it by changing what you eat.  I don't believe in drastically changing your daily diet because many people burn out and quit eating healthy.

 

So instead of just eating kale all day (or whatever you hate eating, I hate kale) add a better alternative or a new food to each meal each day. Next thing you know your plate is looking healthier and more balanced and your cholesterol is getting better.

 

I also wrote a blog about foods that help lower cholesterol.  Make sure to pop over after reading this blog post for inspiration.  You can read it here.
