Foodies Beware: Food that Contain Cholesterol that You Should Avoid

foods-that-contain-cholesterol

Finding a food that contain cholesterol is easy. You just have to look everywhere and you will basically find lots of them. Why? Because nearly every food contains cholesterol in them. If you manage to find a food without no nutritional value in them, then, by all means, please tell me about them because I am very interested in learning about it.

For today’s article, still on the topic of foods and cholesterol within them, we are going to talk about foods that contain bad cholesterol in them. Without further ado, let us begin with the first food in the list: the oils 

  • Not all oils, just canola oil, and processed vegetable oil

I have to admit that while I do believe that canola oil is tasty, it is very unhealthy. Every oil will go through a process of hydrogenation, and when a canola oil undergoes this process, every hells known to man will break loose. They will be filled with trans fats. Trans fats are not too healthy for you (its effect are even more detrimental to a human’s body), so avoid this oil at all cost if you are cooking.

Other oils that can be dangerous when they go through hydrogenation are safflower oil, vegetable oil, corn oil, and soy oil. If you can, do not bother using these oils for a reason explained above. 

  • The ‘good’ snacks

The ‘good’ snacks that I am talking here are potato chips and many other processed snacks. Again, I have to admit that potato chips and many processed snacks are tasty (and I am guilty of eating them once in a while), but along the taste comes a danger that will ultimately make your life harder. They are a part of the food groups that contain bad cholesterol in it, so avoid them to make your life easier to live in the future.

That does not mean you should ALWAYS avoid them. Once in a while is always good, but do not eat them twice a day or so. 

  • I hate to say this but I should because it is absolutely dangerous: bacon

Ah, we have arrived at this food item.

Bacon to me is what Achilles to his heel. Bacon is my weakness, a personal ambrosia that I love to indulge myself with. It is a food of the heavens, a combination of salty and tasty that dances around my tongue like a spark of ember by the bonfire. It is God’s gift to the world, and it is probably the best food ever invented (speaking from personal opinion. Do not judge me).

Sadly, when I analogize the connection between me and bacon with Achilles and his heel, there is a glaring thing that I have to acknowledge. The cholesterol within the bacon is the Paris with his bow and arrow. As when Paris finally killed the immortal Achilles with a clean shot to Achilles’ heel, the cholesterol within bacon will kill me with a not-too-clean shot to the heart. Both me and Achilles will not like it, but that is what we get from indulging ourselves on the things that will doom us: Achilles in his wars, and me in my bacons.
