During this trip I watched an interesting video on how to make yourself “heart attack proof” by Dr. Carlton Esselstyn. (Thanks Chef Penni!) He advocates a plant based diet.
I have lab work coming up so I am curious to see if in 3 weeks of eating a plant based diet I will see a dramatic reduction in my cholesterol and LDL levels. Even with my usual healthy eating they have been worrisome in recent years, skirting on borderline high. Dr. Esselstyn has years of evidence to back up his claims so I am intrigued. I am on day 4 of eating nothing but plant based food. Once I get home I will be able to make my own food and start posting my favorite recipes.
