Some say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It can give a person a much needed boost to start the day and provide them with the necessary fuel to get through to lunch. All we know is, breakfast can do more than just that. It can also affect your cholesterol levels.
There are two types of cholesterol, good cholesterol and bad cholesterol.
Good cholesterol is known as high-density lipoprotein.
Bad cholesterol is known as low-density lipoprotein.
Good cholesterol helps to strengthen your heart and improve your health.

Bad cholesterol, on the other hand, blocks your arteries and increases your risk of heart disease.
The reason why breakfast is so crucial in all of this is because your diet is the best way to moderate your cholesterol levels.
A particular breakfast could be most beneficial – oat-based cereal.
These include fruits and non-starchy veg including asparagus, tomatoes, peppers and cauliflower.
Blackberries, blueberries and raspberries can also be of use.
So too reducing how much meat you consume.
