Expert Tips

Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats from nuts and seeds may help lower blood cholesterol. But fats are high in calories so keep portions small.

Get creative and replace the dried fruit and nuts with different flavors. Try dried cranberries with pistachios or dried apricots with almonds.
