How to Lower Cholesterol Without Pills

Mid-Afternoon Snack

The healthy dieters had more almonds and fresh fruit in the afternoon, but with an added dose of psyllium, a form of soluble fiber made from ground up psyllium seeds. Psyllium may not be very appetizing, so to get your fill of fiber, try these Banana, Yogurt, and Walnut Muffins; the bananas and oatmeal both contain high levels of soluble fiber.

Dinner

Dieters who shed the most cholesterol swapped pasta for pearled barley and an omelet for a tofu bake with ratatouille. To jazz up plain barley, make a Creamy Barley Risotto or add asparagus and cucumbers and top with a yogurt-dill dressing. Then add some tofu to this recipe for Easy Ratatouille. Just be sure your tofu is organic; nonorganic tofu has been found to contain high levels of cancer-causing hexane.
