2. Garbanzo Beans.
A great way to help reduce your overall cholesterol levels is to load up on fiber, but the trick is to have soluble fiber. Beans are a good option when it comes to adding soluble fiber in the diet and garbanzo beans are one of the best options. A one cup serving of garbanzo beans typically contains about 50 percent of your daily fiber needs and most of this fiber is likely to contain soluble fiber. Garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas, go very well in many dishes, pastas, as well as a side dish. Consider adding a full cup of garbanzo beans for best results.
