High Cholesterol At A Young Age

At the age of forty-five, I never imagined I would hear the words high cholesterol from my doctor. I have to tell you when I did, I knew it was time to rethink how I planned my meals, how I prepared my meals, and how I cooked my meals. A few simple changes to my diet helped the numbers drop and I was able to stop taking the medicine that I was prescribed. The changes I made were simple, smart choices in the food we ate. One of those choices was switching from cooking oils high in saturated fat to Mazola Corn Oil. Mazola Corn Oil is an all-purpose, cholesterol-free cooking oil that is a smart heart-healthy* choice for your family. *See Mazola.com for more information on the relationship between corn oil and heart health

Why Should You Switch To Mazola Corn Oil?

  • It has a variety of uses including baking, grilling, sautéing, stir-frying, or mixing up a marinade or dressing (just like the better-for-you honey mustard sauce in the recipe below).
  • Mazola Corn Oil has more cholesterol-blocking plant sterols than other cooking oils – four times more than extra virgin olive oil and one and a half times more than canola oil. 
  • Mazola has a smoke point higher than most cooking oils at 450°F and performs well in a variety of cooking applications. Many home cooks may not realize that all cooking oils have a smoke point that, once exceeded, not only negatively affect the food’s flavor but also its nutritional value.

Celebrate National Cholesterol Awareness Month With Food!

With a house full of very active young adults, cooking hearty, fill-you-up food is a must. Not only do I need to feed and satisfy three growing young men, but I also need to keep our meals on the lighter side with reduced saturated fat and cholesterol intake.

Swap Ingredients For A Lighter Meal

Doing this successfully is easier than you think. Just a few simple ingredient swaps can change the nutritional value of a recipe pretty drastically. Our family’s traditional chicken tenders call for all-purpose flour and a large frying pan full of heavy cooking oil. Swapping the all-purpose flour for almond flour and coconut flour and swapping out the deep-fried tenders to baking them in the oven with a light coat of Mazola Corn Oil makes it lighter without losing any of the flavor or substance. An absolute must-have with chicken tenders is honey mustard dipping sauce! I have also lightened up our favorite dipping sauce by replacing the mayonnaise with Greek yogurt, and the vegetable oil with Mazola Corn Oil. I can serve this entire meal up to my guys with confidence that I am preparing the very best and the most satisfying meal for them that I can. Here is how we make them!

To bread the chicken tenders, coat lightly in the flour mixture, dip the chicken tender into the egg mixture then back into the flour mixture. Coat each chicken tender generously with the flour mixture. Place on the baking sheet. Repeat this process to each chicken tender. Bake for 10 minutes on one side, flip each piece of chicken and continue to cook for 10 minutes, or until the center of the chicken reaches 165 degrees on a meat thermometer.  *Tip: For a deeper, darker color on the top of your chicken, place under the broiler for just a couple minutes. The almonds in the almond flour will turn a nice golden brown. While the chicken is baking, prepare your sauce.
