“Everything looks great, except for….your cholesterol”, doctor says. “Any particular insight as to why your cholesterol is 267?”. “Well, um….does eating eggs five days a week impact that number? Or could it be the side of beef we purchase every six months?” , I asked jokingly. This is no surprise, my cholesterol was over 200 when I was 19 years old and weighed 98 pounds.

I have had this talk for over 20 years with my doctor but this time…more serious. I have six months to do lower my cholesterol on my own. Then we have to talk about “M.E.D.I.C.A.T.I.O.N”. Seriously????Really?????

I am taking this seriously….ooohhh a challenge…a goal to meet…..I am going to try to do it with some dietary changes. Starting with breakfast…..Steel cut oatmeal, almonds, banana….not so bad I have to say.

So long my favorite scrambled eggs with cheese….take care poached on toast….hasta la vista eggs benedict…it was nice knowing you!
