200lbs of Honey Nut Cheerios Please

A certain someone (not me, I haven’t checked yet) is getting pegged with high cholesterol and now needs a diet/exercise regimen.  According to webmd, “there’s a link between high cholesterol and heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other health problems.”  Eek, can’t be having that.

My other blog, Blue Plate Special, normally posts any recipe that I find naturally delicious and other notes about food I need to write about.  I am going to have to do my best to update that with cholesterol-lowering meals now.  First, I have to know what that is…sheesh.

Here are some tips from the American Heart Association for cooking for lower cholesterol (click link for more detailed info):

1-Aim to eat less than 1,500 mg of sodium per day.

2-Eat no more than six ounces of cooked lean meat, poultry, fish or seafood a day for people who need 2,000 calories.

3-Choose seafood at least twice a week

4-Cook fresh vegetables the low-fat, low-salt way

5-Substitute egg whites for whole eggs

6-Puree fruits and veggies for baking

7-Lower dairy fats

8-Increase fiber and whole grains

Oh man, please pass the Honey Nut Cheerios
