A Breakfast Combination That Could Help to Lower Cholesterol

Most of us know breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, only a few know what you choose as the first meal of the day can spike your cholesterol levels. Most of our breakfast favorites are high in cholesterol, which is problematic. For healthy cholesterol levels, here is what should take instead.

Wholemeal Toast, Smashed Avocado, and Poached Egg

Avocado is high in healthy fats, while wholemeal toast is loaded with fiber. Combined, healthy fats and fiber can help you keep your cholesterol in check. The two mega nutrients will also make you feel fuller, preventing overeating. On the other hand, the poached egg will make your breakfast protein-rich, which is a good thing.

Wholemeal Toast and Almond or Peanut Butter

Despite being a cholesterol-friendly breakfast, preparing whole meal Toast and Almond or peanut butter is easy. This combination pumps ‘bad’cholesterol-reducing ingredients, including fiber into your body. If you decide to work with peanut butter, I strongly suggest you choose varieties with no added sugars.
