The Heart-Smart Whole Grain

One of the easiest ways to significantly lower your cholesterol is to eat whole-grain oatmeal daily, reports a British review of 10 studies. The fiber in oatmeal forms a gel that slows down your body's absorption of cholesterol.

Shopping shortcut: Choose one that's low in sugar (1&nmsp;gram per serving), such as Quaker Weight Control Instant Oatmeal.

Make it even healthier: Satisfy your sweet tooth by topping the oatmeal with a handful of antioxidant-heavy blueberries.

Bonus benefits: "People who eat oatmeal for breakfast tend to stay full all morning and consume less at lunch, due in part to the protein and fiber," says Dave Grotto, RD, a nutritionist in Chicago and a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association.

Make sure the chocolate you buy is fair trade... too often we look for the lowest price, but oftentimes this chocolate is made by slaves overseas.
