So..that's it, the holidays are officially over. Just before Christmas the doctor told me I have high cholesterol and although I tried to be careful over the holidays I still over did it with foods that are a big NO NO..but no more excuses. I have an appointment with the dietitian next month but I'll not wait until then, I'm starting today to live a healthier life which will include a sensible diet with lots of veggies, fruit, legumes, fish, chicken and exercise.
Truly..I'm excited about legumes, fruits and veggies..well my arteries and my heart are happy, my brain, not so much.
I bought a bunch of dried beans at Bosa Foods when I was in Vancouver on the weekend and left the salami, Italian sausages and cheeses behind, didn't seem quite right.
I just have to tell myself beans are good for me, actually I'll call them legumes, sounds better than beans. So..today I'm soaking and then cooking the legumes. Don't know yet how I will use them but they are on the menu for tomorrow.
