The outcry over horsemeat in beef burgers made me think that maybe there is a slight silver lining to raised cholestrol after all: no beef burger makes it into my shopping trolley.
In fact, since working towards lowering my level - and now keeping it there - I am eating far more wholegrains, pulses, fish and a bit of chicken. I now just walk past the processed meat section of my supermarket even though sausages still seem to call out my name as I go by. As does bacon. And crisps, biscuits and crackers. Hmmm.
I have put together a collection of 90 low fat recipes which have been very helpful (to me at least) in that I can eat them and my family enjoy them too. If anyone is interested in getting the recipes (free) you can send me a message and I will pass on the details to you.
