Which recipes help with both diabetes and lowering cholesterol?

Are there any recipes that do both?
I LOVE using my NutriBullet but need recipes that can both manage my Type 2 diabetes and help lower my cholesterol.

Absolutely! Making sure your Blast is filled with fiber-rich foods that are also low in sugar, along with some protein to help manage blood sugar can help with both.
Here are a few I'd recommend: Be sure to monitor blood sugar as each person reacts differently.

These foods are filled with fiber and antioxidants...two important components to help reduce cholesterol. Focus on soluble fiber - this type binds LDL cholesterol to help remove it from your body! Oats, apples and flax seed are great additions to a cholesterol-lowering NutriBlast. Grapes, strawberries, and citrus fruits also contain pectin, a type of soluble fiber most noted in apple skins, that lowers LDL. Check out this link from Harvard that distinguishes the breakdown of fiber found in several foods.

Outside of NutriBlasting, I'd recommend eating more plant-based foods and fewer processed carbs. With continuous NutriBlasting...over time, you will more than likely see your numbers drop!
