Last on the list is a vegetable that is similar to broccoli, but with a completely different taste. Cauliflower is a potent vegetable that plays vital roles in many health features, including your cholesterol. Studies have shown cauliflower to be important for attaching bile acids together, which has been shown to maintain and regulate your cholesterol. For best results with your cauliflower, you should steam and not boil the vegetable so the healthy compounds do not evaporate with the heat. Steaming for about 10 minutes should be sufficient to thoroughly cook the vegetable for you to get the most out of your cholesterol lowering benefits.
