Foods to Lower Cholesterol

Superfood quinoa is an excellent source of complete protein (contains all 9 amino acids) and is particularly high in lysine, which is important for tissue growth and repair.

Containing a combination of E vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids and monounsaturated fatty acids, quinoa reduces unhealthy cholesterol levels and fights inflammation, so is wonderful for heart health.

The inflammation-reducing properties here will lessen the risk of hardening of the arteries.

Combined with the other powerful nutrient-rich foods, this lunch will satisfy your body and mind, keeping you boosted throughout the afternoon.

This salad has a fantastic taste sensation of sweet, salty, earthy, grassy, and tangy! With a possible fruit kick from the kalamata olives (also rich in monounsaturated fatty acids; protecting the heart; reducing inflammation).

  • 2 carrots
  • 4 tbsp cooked quinoa
  • 10 Kalamata olives
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper

Directions

  1. Grate the carrots, and slice the tomatoes in halves.

  2. Place all the ingredients in a salad bowl and toss. It’s ready to be enjoyed!
