Healthy Snacking for Healthy Life: High Cholesterol Diet Menu Snacks

Snacking is a big part of some people’s life because some people cannot go through a day without eating a snack, and for that reason, I am writing this article about high cholesterol diet menu snacks. Snacks are a type of food that is a bit confusing for me. Eating them is not wrong, but it is not quite right either. They are in the middle of the ‘eat or not’ spectrum, and eating them will not be wrong and will not be right. You can easily leave them if you want to, but eating them will not ruin your health or anything (that is unless you trade meals for snacks. That is when you should stop).

Although eating snacks are not wrong, there are snacks that you should avoid AT ALL COST if you are eating menu for a high cholesterol diet. If you are in a menu for high cholesterol diet, I can give you some snack recipes that you can make if the desire to snack ever arises within you. Let us start with the first snack: breadsticks 

  1. Breadsticks and a beanbased garlic dip

High-cholesterol-diet-menu-breadsticks-and-a-bean-based-garlicBreadstick dips usually contain lots of unhealthy fat, which is why I give you this recipe. Beans are low in unhealthy fat content and can be turned into a creamy like mixture like any breadstick dips are.

What you will need for this recipe are 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds, 2 teaspoons of sesame seeds, 400 grams of cannellini beans, half a lemon juice, 40 grams olive spread, a tablespoon of mayo, a clove of garlic, and breadsticks.

All you need to do is to process all of the ingredients (bar the breadsticks) in a food processor and serve the dipping bean with the breadsticks. If you love garlic, this one food snack will certainly tickle your fancy. 

  1. Oat and nutty bread

Another bread menu, but this one is better suited for those looking for a sweet bread.

What you will need for this menu should be a reminiscent of any ordinary bread out there. You will need 300 grams of strong plain flour, a hundred gram of porridge oats, a 115 grams of plain wholemeal flour, a teaspoon of salt, a third quarter of yeast, 2 tablespoons of honey, 55  grams of nuts, 325 millilitres of milk, 1 tablespoon of porridge oats, and 25 grams of chopped nuts.

Now, this is where things get interesting. To make this one, you should put the flour, salt, and oats into a big bowl. Mix it with butter until it resembles breadcrumbs and adds honey, yeast, and nuts inside. Add all of the liquid until it forms a dough. Knead the dough, shape it into a ball, and cover it until it grows in size.

When it has grown, knead it again, cover it again and wait after it rises. When it has done rising, brush milk unto and sprinkle the oats and nuts if you still got them. When you are done, bake it in a preheated oven for 30 minutes in a 200 Celsius oven. 

  1. The last sample menu for high cholesterol diet: roasted red pepper hummus

Hummus is a spread that many Middle Eastern-ers love. They can be eaten alone or they can be used a spread on a bread or something. This one humus is a nice tasting dish for those looking to go a bit Middle Eastern.As all hummus, this one requires chickpeas (400 grams to be precise), half a lemon juice, 1 clove of garlic, and a tablespoon of pesto.

You just need to mix them all up in a processor and this one will certainly be a high cholesterol diet menu snack worth dying for.
