Vegetable and fruits to lower cholesterol

Eating a variety of colorful vegetables and fruit everyday can help protect you against heart disease, stroke and some cancers. Many vegetables and fruit are high in soluble fiber which helps to reduce the absorption of cholesterol and lower ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol in your blood. Leave the skins on vegetables like pumpkin, and carrot to maximize your intake of fiber. Use orange and lemon peel in dressings and sauces.
