Have any good recipes for helping me lower my cholesterol?
I am a vegetarian, but can usually substitute non-meat in lots of recipes. If you have a good, healthy recipe that might help me reach my targets (more below), I'd be much obliged! Along with exercising more, I'm hoping to have my numbers good in about 3 months when I go for another round of bloodwork.
So at the ripe age of 23 - thanks to less than stellar diet and exercise + some horrific family history, I have slightly high cholesterol. I'm looking for some unboring, healthy recipes that might help me along the way. I've taken to eating steel cut oats once a day, but lets be honest it isn't the most exciting meal ever.
I don't think I eat too poorly, but I do fancy a good plate of nachos on occasion and make a mean baked ziti - things I'm obviously gonna have skip most of the time. FWIW, I'm not overweight and am otherwise healthy - triglycerides, sodium, blood pressure are all doing great. Just gotta get those LDL's down.
