Promote Healthy Cholesterol Levels – Make Your Own Flax Seed Mixture
Flax seeds, although currently being touted as a healthy HDL raising foodstuff, have actually been in use in tropical countries as part of their healthy diet for ages.
You want to use whole Flax seeds and not Flax seed oil because it turns rancid very quickly, so this is why making a home-made mixture with whole seeds works best for health reasons.
Here is one recipe I found that appears to be easy to make and highly nutritious to boot.
Roast 3.5 ounces of flax seeds until they crackle. Cool. Add 2-3 dried read hot peppers (use cayenne pepper instead if you like), 6 small bulbs of garlic and salt to taste. Run this mixture through a food blender until smooth.
You can eat two teaspoons of this as is per day, or combine with other foods like toast, bagel or baked potato. Mixed with low fat sour cream or plain yogurt, this makes a great dip. Remember though, for cholesterol purposes, only eat it with no or low cholesterol foods.
It is important to make small quantities at a time because flax seed spoils fast in hot humid conditions, so refrigeration after preparation is encouraged.
I have not personally made this recipe, so if you do make it, let us know how you like it.
You can also use Heart Formula for the improvement of your heart health, like specific foods can do best response with your LDL level and maintain it at stable point as well as Heart Formula is also very beneficial for heart health.
Wheat Cereal – The Other Hot Breakfast
A hot breakfast usually consists of a drive through egg and sausage biscuit or muffin, deep-fried hash-brown potatoes or bacon, sausage and eggs from the local diner. These types of traditional hot breakfast foods are full of fat, calories and cholesterol. If you are looking for a healthier hot breakfast why not consider hot wheat cereals. Hot wheat, or even rice cereals are low in fat and sodium. Usually the only unhealthy ingredients you will find in your hot cereal are the ones you add yourself. The instant fruit flavored packets of oatmeal are not the best choice. You can make your own by using quick cooking oats and dried fruit. Measure the oats out into a baggie or container with a lid, add the dried fruit of your choice (cut bigger pieces of fruit into smaller chunks) and you have the same product only healthier. You can make many of these healthier packets of instant oatmeal all at one time.
The two types of super healthy hot cereals are Cream of Wheat, which has around 133 calories per cooked cup and whole wheat cereals that have around 150 calories per cooked cup. These are just estimates. You need to check the labels if you are counting calories.
Whole wheat cereals have better nutrition than do the cream varieties. Whole wheat cereals contain the endosperm, bran and the germ whereas the cream cereals only contain the germ part of the grain.
On the other hand Heart Formula is specially formulated for keeping your calories and LDL level under control. Heart Formula is an antioxidant supplement which contains CoQ10 the major key ingredient that promotes your heart health. So in your diet plan feel free to add Heart Formula, because it has no side effects at all.
Here are some other great ideas for your healthy hot cereal.
Cook your cereal with real 100% fruit juice.
Use the cereal to make breads, muffins, pancakes and waffles.
Try different spices in your cereal like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, almond or allspice.
Use the cereal as a thickener instead of flour or corn starch.
There are many healthy benefits to eating hot wheat cereals and they can be just as tasty and convenient as the drive-thru varieties or prepackaged brands you by at the store.
