Low cholesterol protein sources
« on: September 28, 2018, 11:00:26 AM »
Bonus points if they are also low sodium.

Anything other than the usual chicken breasts, turkey breasts, egg whites, or nonfat dairy?
I was also told to avoid nuts, coconut, and avocado even though they don't contain cholesterol.  :confused:

Note: I can't eat any soy product

Do you have issues with other beans besides soybeans?

So, everyone on my  nutrition plan seems to LOVE this recipe. They call it "crack chicken". I am not sure if they ranch dip would cause it to be too much sodium for you but there might be low-sodium options.

5 pounds of chicken, 1 packet of ranch dressing mix, and half a bottle of Franks hot sauce in the crockpot on high for 4 hours. Once the chicken was cooked, I drained 90% of the juice and added in 8 oz of fat free cream cheese. I let the cream cheese melt a bit and then shredded the chicken in the crockpot.

This is a very popular superbowl recipe.  I think the sauce is high in sodium, too.

I think Bison works.  Costco has incredible bison hot dogs, though expensive.  I can find Bison alternatives to beef pretty easily around here... skirt steak, rib eye, ny strips...

For most people, dietary cholesterol has little impact on blood cholesterol due to the tight regulation of cholesterol biosynthesis in the human body.  Or are you one of those folks who is sensitive to dietary cholesterol?

I would echo the beans suggestion. What about whey supplements?

I don't know. That is what I am testing in the next 3 months...with my sample set of 1.  :D I have less than zero desire to take statins...especially at 38.

Yes...most (all) beans give me major GI distress, especially lentils...no matter how they are prepared or cooked (thanks IBS).

But also the husband won't eat any beans...ever.
He also won't eat fish...although sometimes I still make it for myself and just make him chicken instead.

I can do buffalo but I can't stand venison.

Ah.  I do ok with pinto beans in moderation (although I don't like them outside of chili), blacked eyed peas, green peas, and whatever beans those are in pork n' beans.  Chickpeas/hummus are the devil.  The fat white beans also did not do well, but at least it wasn't like food poisoning.  And sadly, black beans are a no-go for more than about 2 tablespoons.  And I LIKE them.

Why? 

My biggest worry would be the risk of diabetes simce I have a strong family history of type 2. But the potential for muscle damage concerns me.

I think it would still taste great without the ranch or the hot sauce.  Just flavor it with things you don't hate (if any :P).  Seriously, crack chicken is good eats for people trying to consume a lot of protein without too much fat or carbs.  I made five pounds of it the other day and it's almost gone.  Definitely on the permanent rotation now.
