According to Janet Bond Brill, R.D., author of the best-selling book Cholesterol Down, "What you buy and how you prepare food is the difference between preventing heart disease and causing it."  She suggests you eat fish but that you bake it instead of frying it.  She also suggests swapping sweet potatoes for white potatoes.  Here are Fish and Chips recommended substitutions.

  • "Bake your fish.  Packed with lean protein, white fish like cod, halibut, flounder or haddock are great, but people who eat fried fish more than once a week have a 44% greater risk of stroke than those who rarely fry their fish."  WOW!
  • "Swap sweet potatoes for white potatoes, use extra-virgin olive oil to roast them and sprinkle with fresh rosemary, cinnamon, or other herbs and spices instead of salt for flavor."
