Over the past couple of decades there has been a growing concern about fats, high blood cholesterol levels and the diseases caused by it. We receive huge number of letters, e-mails from our members asking one common question, ‘Has cholesterol got anything to do with heart disease - or any other disease? And even if it has, will a change of diet be beneficial?

While some cholesterol is needed for good health, too much cholesterol in our blood can raise our risk of having a heart attack. Anyone can develop high blood cholesterol regardless of age or sex; there are some who can be genetically predisposed to high blood cholesterol. Thus it is important to keep a check on your cholesterol levels. As always said “Earlier the Better”, taking early precautions like avoiding saturated fats and cholesterol rich foods, eating high fiber foods and exercising can help regulate your blood cholesterol levels.

This section of “Low Cholesterol Recipes” is for all those who want to start early and also for those who are already on a low cholesterol diet as they have high blood cholesterol levels or any other heart problem. Delicious recipes are planned by strictly avoiding the use of fatty foods like butter, cheese, processed foods that increase blood cholesterol and sodium levels. While foods that help to reduce cholesterol like oats, whole cereals, fruits, veggies, sprouts, olive oil, flax seeds etc have been included to aid in blood cholesterol management. Try your hand at recipes like Broccoli Broth; Bajra, Whole Moong and Green Pea Khichdi; Grapefruit and Green Apple Salad, Flax Seed Shakarpara, Kaddu Palak ki Roti and so on.

Happy and healthy cooking for your heart!
