I'm glad you liked the breakfast recipe. I actually eat that for lunch and snacks too sometimes. Adding any fruit to it also is good for taste, although you're supposed to eat fruit by itself on an empty stomach for best results. For the pizza, just order a pizza without cheese! Of course, you gott...

Actually, she looks more like human women are supposed to look (i.e. with some FAT!) in the first "before" picture. The second "before" picture's quality is too crappy to decide. I have no doubt that her diet was very unhealthy, but seriously, being a stick isn't all that much b...

Another kick butt way to make quinoa would be just how you make oatmeal. A little cinnamon, raisins, almonds(sprouted), and soy/rice/almond milk and you're good to go. My mom also just eats quinoa like cereal. Put on some fresh fruit and soy milk. Really quick meal if you make it the night before(l...

Re: raw

I think a raw fast might do the trick. I've always had really low cholestorol so its never been a problem for me but I think if you go on a raw diet for a couple weeks then add in normal vegan cooked food(if you want to) your number should drop drastically Thanks, veganpotter!! I looked into some f...

You mentioned to eat more quinoa which I like quinoa but I only know one recipe that I use quinoa to stuff green peppers with and bake. They are pretty good for supper but can you used quinoa for other meals? I will look for other recipes here and see what else some are using quinoa in recipes. Qui...

Looking at your diet, you are probably eating a lot of fat. The majority of the items you listed (spread, meat analog, tofu) are very high in fat. If your diet is as you wrote above, it might be 40% to 50% fat. Your cholesterol is near a dangerous level, and your Total to HDL ratio is pretty high (...

Kathryn, Thank you so much!! I will look for the sprouted grain tortill and look into some spreads although what I am gathering, most spreads are made with oils. Not good for me right now, I think. I have 2 months to make a major change in my cholestral. The doctor wants to recheck my bloodwork in 2...
