Cholesterol Reducing Diet – Example

My mum suffered from high bad cholesterol and therefore she had to do something about that. In addition, she was overweight too. She realized that there are many natural ways to lower cholesterol and therefore she did not decide to take any medications.

She made some radical changes in her lifestyle. She began to exercise, slowly but persistently. She started to consume more liquid, especially water. And … she changed her nutrition, she started a diet to lower cholesterol level.

She realized which cholesterol high foods she must avoid and she discovered foods that help lower cholesterol. My mum has always been a good cook so it was not a big problem for her to “invent” delicious low cholesterol recipes very quickly.

The positive results were visible already in a short time. Her bad LDL cholesterol level was reduced, she lost some kg, and she felt much better. She has realized that a healthy lifestyle is the best way to control cholesterol levels. Therefore, she kept the good habits she got used to, including a cholesterol control diet.

Here is her diet example with foods to avoid high cholesterol:

- For her low cholesterol recipes she uses only soy or vegetable cream.

- Instead of full-fat cheese, she consumes solely Tofu and Mozzarella cheese.

- Instead of full-fat milk and dairy products, she enjoys slim milk and low-fat dairy products. For better digestion, she eats kefir or non-fat yogurt with flaxseeds every evening.

- She uses just a little salt, no more soup cubes, or Vegeta, she adds to dishes some more spices and herbs to taste better.

- She eats only whole wheat pastas and whole grain rice.

- She bakes bread herself, using whole-wheat flour, oat flakes, and some mixed seeds.


- She consumes lots of raw and cooked fruits and vegetables, especially leguminous vegetables. Cooked soybeans are also among her favorite vegetable, which she often uses in her low cholesterol recipes. Because of better taste, she prefers green soybeans.

- She uses solely olive oil.

- She eliminated meat from her diet, she only eats fish and seafood.

As I have already mentioned, my mum has always been a great cook and even we enjoy her delicious low cholesterol recipes very much. Amongst her healthy recipes, I prefer baked rice with mozzarella and tomato slices, baked stuffed pumpkins or peppers, and her sea fish dishes.

For instance, she grills a salmon fillet quickly or she pours just a little of olive oil into a skillet and bakes it. If she longs for sauce, she makes it from soy or vegetable cooking cream.

Our Cholesterol Control Diet

Our diet is not as strict as my mum’s cholesterol and triglyceride lowering diet. However, we are very much aware of relationship between cholesterol and diet. Therefore, we practice a kind of low cholesterol low sugar diet. We avoid high cholesterol foods as much as possible and we rather follow low cholesterol recipes.

We are aware how healthy raw food is and we prepare lovely raw food meals regularly. With a help of our homemade weight watchers recipes we successfully take care of our body weight and consequently of our health as well.

Fresh fruit and vegetable are the most important part of our healthy nutrition. We prefer organic grown veggies and fruits from our organic vegetable and fruit garden, divine wild plants and fruits, which we get from the meadows and woods around our house, and we like various amazing superfoods as well.


To enjoy all benefits of organic fruits and vegetables we prepare ourselves beautiful homemade all natural juices and amazing smoothies daily.

Raw food low cholesterol recipes are beautiful and should be a part of any cholesterol reducing diet. However, we are not strictly on a raw food diet, we also very much enjoy different healthy homemade cooked meals.

We also know that too much salt intake can cause many health problems, including too high bad LDL cholesterol values. For that reason, we reduced salt intake and in our low cholesterol recipes we rather use more other herbs and spices. Normally, we prepare our own healthy homemade spice mixes. Here is one of our recipes:

Homemade Vegetable Spice Blend


• 1 kg Carrot (red or yellow)
• ½ kg Parsley – greens together with roots
• 1 kg Onion (red or white)
• 1 big Leek
• 1 big Celery with a root bulb
• 1 Kohlrabi
• 1 bulb Garlic
• 1 Chili Pepper
• 60 dag Salt flower or Himalayan salt



Clean and wash fresh seasonal vegetable first. Put it into a blender or a food processor and grind it well. Add salt and stir again. In order that flavors mix well you should put pasta into a cold place or into a fridge and leave it over the night. Next day pour the vegetable spice blend into small clean glass jars, which can be hermetically closed and preserve the jars in a cold, dark place. In such way homemade vegetable spice blend can last approx. one year, but surely you will use it up quicker.

Frozen vegetables can be used as well. However, it’s much better to take fresh, seasonal vegetable, ecologically grown if possible. You do not have to follow our recipe 100%. Be creative and just take fresh produce from your garden or the most favorable vegetables from organic food stores. In different seasons, you can prepare various flavored seasoning blends, always beautiful and healthy.

You can use seasonal vegetable spice blend to spice up almost any dish, from soups, sauces, baked fish, to meat. Adjust quantity to suit your taste.

You can sauté seasonal blend together with an onion, you can add it at the beginning of cooking, or you may add it toward the end of the cook time for taste that is more distinct.

A very healthy and easy spicing solution for beautiful low cholesterol recipes, don’t you agree?
