My Inspiration for Abundance of Vegetables


I enjoy food and being creative with it. I am NOT a cooking professional. I do it for fun and love sharing my joy for it.

I started my focus on eating an abundance of vegetables in mid 2019 after a recommendation by my doctor, who is a Naturopathic physician.

I had an alarming cholesterol rate over 200 points. My Dr. recommended that I eat an abundance of vegetables with a little bit of protein, avoid processed foods, gluten, dairy and alcohol. I didn't completely follow the rules, but I did make a conscious effort to increase my vegetable intake. A month later, my cholesterol was normal.

I have taken the following hands-on cooking classes:

So much fun! I love!


May and July 2019 - My cholesterol is out of control.

Update - December 2019: My cholesterol is elevated again. 😐👊  Perhaps this is due to all the holiday gorging and drinking, etc.  I need to try harder, I know.

 Update - January 2020.  Triglycerides elevated.

Update - February 2020: My cholesterol is back to normal.  I have been taking a red rice yeast supplement.

 

Update - September 2020: My overall cholesterol is good at 176.  However, my triglycerides are elevated.  I don’t normally eat a lot of sweets or fruits and had issues with this before. My doctor thinks it’s because it’s hereditary and prescribed a high quality fish oil supplement to assist me with this.


Update - October 2020: My overall cholesterol is excellent at 169.  Additionally, my triglycerides, HDL, LDL , and non-HDL are all in check and in healthy ranges.  Fuck yah!  I've had a horrible October, but at least I have some good news now here. 👌

 

Update - April 2021: My overall cholesterol is still excellent at 157. Fantastic!




 
 

 

Update - November 2021: Triglycerides elevated.  Dr. increased my fish oil supplement.

Update - January 2022: All within normal levels.  LDL is right at the border, but my Dr. is okay with keeping my medications as is.
