Low Fat Raw Vegan Recipes For Cutting Cholesterol
By Christine Delareya
Why are low fat raw vegan recipes better than other diet recipes?
Many peoples cholesterol is too high. Not just that, it is the bad fats that is generally what causes the high cholesterol as it comes from animal and dairy products. Good fats come from vegetables, fruit and nuts and can actually be good for you. Taking on a raw vegan diet involves a “detox” period to rid yourself of the excessive cholesterol.
Think of your drainer at home. You know if you put fat down the sink, it’ll block it up. So why eat food that’s bad for you? Your insides are blocked up from eating high cholesterol food. They need cleaned out or detoxed to gain the maximum benefit.
Cutting your Cholesterol
Getting protein from animal products and the protein involves taking in cholesterol, which our bodies aren’t well-equipped to break down. It coats our stomach with grease, making absorption difficult. It constipates us. When it is absorbed into our blood, cholesterol makes our blood thick and it clogs our arteries. It kills more Americans than anything else.
Dairy products are full of saturated fats and “bad” cholesterol. Often the body will develop allergies to fight the dairy invasion. We are the only species on the planet that drinks milk as adults.
To cut cholesterol, what should be included in your low fat raw vegan recipes?
As long as you are eating enough green vegetables and fruits, you don’t have to worry about limiting your intake of the good fats, but don’t overdo it. The “good fats” include mono-unsaturated fats, which you can find in avocados, almonds, and olives, Omega-3 fatty acids, which are in flax seeds and walnuts.
The “good fats” also include polyunsaturated fats, which can be found in walnuts, flax, hemp, sesame, sunflower and other seeds.
Within reason, you will not get fat by eating avocados, sprouted nuts and seeds, and other plant fats. Everything in moderation of course, but eating this daily is not an issue for most people with respect to weight.
The raw vegan diet works best by embracing it as fully as possible. But you can gain benefit by starting to adopt the low fat raw vegan recipe ideas gradually. Perhaps a day a week initially. Perhaps a meal a day. Whichever approach you adopt, it will undoubtedly help to reduce cholesterol and lead to weight loss.
