September is National Cholesterol Education Month, so now is a great time to call up your doctor to get your blood cholesterol checked and learn about food and lifestyle choices that can help you reach your cholesterol-related goals.

The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute says that high blood cholesterol affects over 65 million Americans; this serious condition can increase your risk for heart disease.  People can have high cholesterol and not even know it.

According to The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, lowering high cholesterol levels can lessen your risk for heart disease and also reduce the chance of having a heart attack or dying of heart disease.  Below, we’ve compiled a list of resources where you can find tasty low-cholesterol recipes so that you can enjoy your dinner and still be “heart smart” when you eat!

For the absolute best advice on lowering cholesterol and adopting a more heart-healthy diet, talk to your primary care physician or a nutritionist.  If you’re in-between doctors or don’t have a nutritionist, consider asking an advocacy service for help.  A service like Health Proponent can connect you to a variety of medical providers who can help you achieve your cholesterol goals.
