Scrambled eggs with whole grain toast

Research suggests that people with high cholesterol do not need to give up eggs, and can eat up to three eggs per week. Here is a simple recipe for scrambled eggs that includes some foods that may help to lower cholesterol. If your levels are very high and you do not want to eat eggs, simply use an egg substitute. For a cholesterol busting bonus, have half a glass of juice fortified with plant sterols and a cup of green or black tea (no milk or sugar).

Ingredients:

2 eggs (or egg substitute)

½ scallion finely chopped

2   medium shitake mushrooms, finely sliced

3-4 grape tomatoes sliced

Margarine (for cooking)

Instructions:

Heat small skillet on medium. Once pan is hot, add about 1 tablespoon of margarine, add sliced mushrooms (cracked pepper, if you wish). Saute about 4 minutes then add beaten eggs or egg substitute and remaining ingredients. Toast one or two slices of whole grain bread. Cook until eggs reach desired consistency. Enjoy!

Variations:

Other vegetables that would work include onion, jalepeño peppers, chili peppers, bell peppers, any other type of mushroom would work as well.

For 2:

Simply double ingredients.

BONUS TIP:

Drink two extra glasses of water today and if the weather is nice, take a walk. Rainy day? Walk around your home or get on a stationary bike – regular exercise plays an important role in lowering cholesterol.
