What are your plans?
My husband would think he had died and gone to heaven if I fixed a meal like that! Poor guy, I have familial high cholesterol, so our diet has changed quite a bit although a little bacon now and then can't hurt...
But I'm blowing the diet with some animal protein and dairy: we are having smoked salmon whole wheat farfalle in a lemon cream (small amount of non-fat cream cheese mixed with non-fat sour cream and veggie stock) sauce with green peas, shallots, white wine, etc. I have no idea what my cholesterol is at this point (go back for retest in 2 months) but I have lost 10 lbs and am back to my high school weight. At my age of 56, I amazed I can even remember what my high school weight was! Woo Hoo! Of course, that's been lots of Zumba, cycling, step, and weight lifting, too.
