Low Fat Low Cholesterol Diets
Choose healthy fats

The low fat low cholesterol diets approach:

Breakfasts

  • Fresh fruit salad with a small serve of fresh yoghurt
  • Two poached or boiled eggs on multigrain toast with a banana on the side
  • Bowl of fresh (untoasted) muesli with banana and honey
  • Mushroom, shallot, spinach & tomato omelette with cracked pepper
  • Open grilled smoked salmon, tomato and avocado on wholegrain toast with cottage cheese
  • Wholemeal pancakes with honey and lemon
  • Breakfast spreads such as jam & vegemite on wholemeal toast

The less processed and whole a food is the more nutritionally sound it will be. Skim milk not only contains half the calories but also half the nutrients - thin full cream milk with water for a more economical low fat choice. 

Lunches

  • Grilled Chicken fillet burger with fresh grated beetroot, carrot and lettuce
  • Roasted Lamb wraps with lettuce and Spanish onion
  • White bean & vegetable soup
  • Vietnamese-style prawn & bean stir-fry
  • Tandoori chicken burger with mango chutney
  • Pita pizzas with shaved ham and pineapple
  • Greek salad with balsamic dressing

The methods in which you choose to cook will often ultimately determine how much fat a dish contains. Obviously poaching, steaming, grilling, broiling, smoking and roasting will produce leaner meals while retaining or often enhancing flavour.

Low fat low cholesterol diets are simple but don't forget to include good fats

Snacks

  • Fresh whole fruits and berries
  • Babaganoush and pita crisps
  • Rice cakes with tomato, basil & avocado
  • Toasted almonds
  • Steamed dim Sims
  • Peach and raspberry ice blocks
  • Sweet potato chips & red onion wedges

Fats are an essential part of any healthy diet; it’s just a matter of selecting the right ones to enjoy in moderation. Fats provide energy, protect vital organs, help regulate temperature and can help control the appetite.

Dinners

  • Garlic and herb crumbed chicken tenderloins, oven baked with ‘dirty’ Cajun paprika potatoes and steamed green beans and broccoli with balsamic carrots
  • Freshly smoked salmon portions (skin on) in a salad of baby spinach, sweet potato and roast pine nuts
  • Barbequed steak with new potatoes, toss salad and grilled pesto stuffed mushrooms
  • Spaghetti bolognaise with lean mince, olive oil, fresh oregano and grated parmesan
  • Black rice salad with pork and cashews
  • Lamb and grilled vegetable moussaka
  • Roast garlic and pumpkin pasta with prawns

Watch the fat content of dressings and sauces. There are many areas you can reduce your oil usage. Try spicing salads with thinly sliced herbs such as mint, basil, coriander and parsley or freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Desserts

  • Cinnamon baked apples stuffed with dates and pecans
  • Lemon meringue pie
  • Fresh pavlova with mixed berries and cream
  • Berry swirl cheesecakes
  • Banana and coconut semifreddo
  • Baked peaches with ricotta
  • Crushed watermelon ginger and mint Granita

Avoid baking desserts with a combination of processed white flour, sugar and dairy cream, meringues are a versatile light option that can pair naturally with many baked fruits. Experiment with subtle sweeteners such as vanilla and be sure to investigate the natural herb stevia.
