And the results are in! I’ve no clue what I’ve done to be blessed by the HDL cholesterol gods, but my HDL (the higher the better/the good cholesterol) was a whopping 97! Average is 40-60 and my dad said he’s only ever seen one person with a higher HDL. As for the bad kind, that’s looking good too. My LDL (bad cholesterol) was 78. Less than 100 is considered good. Interestingly, this makes for a combined cholesterol of 190 which would normally be “high,” but because of my absurd HDL, it’s actually a very good thing. WHEW. My triglycerides were 79.
So as for Day 2, I’ve come to realize that being vegan sometimes means a bouquet of produce color! This morning I had blueberry oatmeal, made with 1/4 cup apple cider and 3/4 cup water, with bananas and cinnamon added. Yum!
For dinner I made a three bean chili that also happened to have three kinds of peppers.
Although I really wanted to add sour cream and cheese to the top of my chili, I refrained. Being vegan: day 2, complete!
