Watching It All
Your everyday cup of coffee might be worse than you think. French press and Turkish coffee raise levels of “bad” cholesterols. Espresso does this too, but serving sizes are usually much smaller.
Thai food is spicy and delicious, but it can also raise your cholesterol if you’re not careful. The main ingredient is coconut milk, something used to make the curries so smooth. Next time you get Thai food, maybe look for some stir fries or noodle dishes.
Most people hear “granola” and instantly think of health food. However, even brands of the low-fat granola can have a super high amount of saturated fats. Eating granola that is sweetened with dried fruit, honey, or maple is always a good idea.
Watching your cholesterol can be a tough task, but avoiding these foods can make everything a lot easier!
