  2. Lunch Salmon, Tomato on Toast with Salad Ingredients 3 ¾ oz can salmon, drained 1 slice of whole grain bread 1 cup salad leaves 1 large tomato, sliced 1 cup sliced bell pepper Lemon juice and black pepper 1 bowl of salad 1 tbsp olive oil Remove the salmon from the can, add it to a dish of lemon juice and sprinkle with black pepper. Prepare a salad and add the olive oil and remaining portion of lemon juice to it. Serve salad and salmon with tomato topped slices of toast.

  3. Dinner Stir-fried Chicken Breast, Veggies and Rice Ingredients 3 tbsp [dry weight] brown basmati rice 4 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast 1 clove minced garlic 1 tbsp canola oil 1 sliced red bell pepper 1 tbsp soy sauce 1 small red onion 1 cup mushrooms Make thin long slices of chicken and vegetables. Add the canola oil to a non-stick skillet, heat it mildly and add the garlic. After a minute, add chicken and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on high heat, until it starts to look brown. Add soy sauce and vegetables, and stir fry for 5 minutes until vegetables are crisp-tender. Serve the chicken and veggies over cooked rice.

  4. Snacks between meals could be a fruit such as an orange or a handful of almonds. However not more than that as a few dry fruits too, contain some oil in them, hence, over consumption of such food items can also have side effects.

  5. This meal plan is just a sample cholesterol diet menu, since you are aware of the foods to be included and excluded, and your personal preferences, you are well equipped to make your own menu. Picking up a book on cholesterol diet recipes will make your job easier. One last diet tip; include foods fortified with plant sterols or stanols (margarines, orange juice and yogurt drinks) which help block the absorption of cholesterol. If you are wondering how to lower your cholesterol apart from diet, the answer lies in maintaining a healthy weight and daily exercise.
