HBP and High Cholesterol... what's the best spread?
hehe ooops I spelled Cholesterol wrong :p
Wondering if anyone who has done research on this could help me out?
My aunt just found out that she has high blood pressure and high cholesterol, her doctor told her to change her eating habits and get some exercise.
He gave her a list of healthy foods etc. and it just gives a generic reference to using a no cholesterol / low in saturated fats spread (but no brand names or reccomendation)
My aunt is a BUTTER fanatic so this is going to be difficult for her!
So far she tried one of the "Becel" spreads (I took her shopping and there were at least 6 different Becels to choose from :eek )
She wound up throwing the tub out after the first use, she said it tasted awful.
Does anyone know if there is a pleasant tasting margarine or spread that would fit the bill? (maybe something that mimics the flavor of butter?)
Thanks in advance for any suggestions :)
