In lectures I will almost always have someone ask about cholesterol. This is the one area where people are very confused and here's an example of a question we get from our readers:
When I look at some of your recipes I see some of them are way over 250mg cholesterol, for instance your Eggs Benedict with 283mg. I understand eggs are considered a high source so that doesn't surprise me with the figure. But.....
I have a cholesterol problem and am trying to lower it without medication. I came across your recipes by doing a search. What is considered HIGH cholesterol content in food when looking at a Nutrition Fact section? Just curious as my doctor really wants me on medication. But every time I take it I feel like crap AND it is so expensive compared to just looking after your dietary intake.
The research into cholesterol is a good illustration of how far we've come in the last 15 years with our knowledge about diet and nutrition as well as what really works. The truth about dietary cholesterol »
Chopped liver is so simple to make and great to have on hand for sandwiches. I like my chopped liver sandwiches with tomato and very thinly sliced onion on toasted bread.
You do have to be careful with chopping the liver. They can turn into a smooth paté very easily, and (in my opinion) chopped liver should have some texture. You don't have to use a food processor if you don't have one. Place the livers and eggs on a cutting board and chop with a large chef's knife. Place the chopped liver in a bowl and then add the spices. Stir to blend well.
