Walnuts contain plenty of monounsaturated fats, helping to increase good HDL cholesterol while lowering bad LDL cholesterol. Walnuts also contain omega 3 fats.

  1. Berries

Berries contain antioxidants that help to mop up free radicals. They are also packed with vitamins C and fibre, both of which can lower your risk of stroke.

  1. Chickpeas

Chickpeas contain soluble fibre that can help lower LDL-cholesterol. If you use canned, choose no salt or low-sodium varieties.

  1. Avocados
