But I Love Pasta


Odd title, okay I get it, but just wanted to get that point across.  In addition to Pasta, I specialize in making tons of other foods that are high in cholesterol.  Good for the tummy, bad for the body I guess, so in finding out just how bad for the body all the yummy stuff I love is, I decided to research some of the things that will help reduce cholesterol.  In researching the foods that are good for reducing cholesterol, I found that the suggestions would not be too difficult to swallow.

The Mayo Clinic says that Oatmeal, oatbran & high fiber foods can help reduce cholesterol.  Oatmeal is not bad right?  I could have a bowl a day.  Also on their list were walnuts, almonds and other nuts.  I guess that if I replaced my overwhelming urge for chocolate with almonds and pecans, this would not be incredibly painful.  Fish is not a personal favorite, but I bet if I seasoned it up with plenty of lemon or even lime, this would work for me.  If I did this the majority of the week, I guess treating myself to fried chicken every now and again wouldn’t be as damaging as it currently is.

Is eating healthy for you, as hard as it is for me?  Send me your suggestions or even your favorite low in cholesterol recipees.  I promise to post them.

    Something interesting. When one gets some exercise, like walking for a while, like walking on a treadmill, like using some weight machines, like moving while holding on to dumbbells, at a gym, and working up a little sweat, when one has had enough, when one is exhausted, one walks slowly home, and, abracadabra, one has a tremendous desire to eat something healthy, like a meat sandwich, like a bowl of soup, like a salad. See if this happens for you, and I will consider that I have done a little good in my life for someone.
