Some foods are high in cholesterol but they’re fine to eat in moderation, as long as your overall diet is low in saturated fats. For example:
Egg yolks – these are high in cholesterol but are rich in several other nutrients. It is recommended that you limit the number of eggs you eat to the equivalent of one a day (whole or in dishes).
Seafood – prawns and seafood contain some cholesterol but they are low in saturated fat and also contain healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Seafood is a healthy food and should not be avoided just because it contains cholesterol. However, avoid fried and battered seafood.
