Whole grains are always a better choice than their refined counterparts. And don’t forget to add fats! Monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats like olive oil, avocado, nuts and seeds, and fatty fish can lower LDL cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. Need some salad inspiration? Scripps Center for Integrated Medicine has you covered.
