Egg whites are so much volume. Bleck.

With so little flavor.  :d

But you can't beat eggs for a super quick and easy dinner.

I have been putting scrambled eggs in my salad. I put a little tamari on them (you can do aminos instead since no soy).

Unfortunately coconut aminos don't have a whole lot of flavor. I never bothered to replace them after we moved because they frankly weren't that good.

But I am fine with hard boiled egg whites on salad.

They measure cholesterol when you give blood?
I think its more accurate if it was fasting...which it wouldn't be when you give blood.

Did your Dr not want to follow up after your high cholesterol in June? Mine set a 3 month followup blood test and mine was 234 so not all that much higher than yours.

Hopefully it was the lack of fasting.

My HDL cholesterol was 80 something so the doc said it made up for the overall level.

I've been looking at my veggie protein sources for you. Trader joe's high-protein veggie burgers are pea protein based. They are ok. Not my fave. At least some of the beyond meat products are soy free. Field roast products also appear to be soy free.

I do like veggie burgers. I will get some at TJs this weekend.

they're super delicious

My very favorite is No Evil Foods but they use shoyu.  sorry :(
Their stuff is amazing.  My favorite is Comrade Cluck  :d

It's a local business that's expanded from farmer's markets to huge distribution.  I'm so happy for them.  I've actually visited their lab to buy The Pardon (their special Thanksgiving unturkey item).

They don't appear to sell in Arizona anyway.

Chia seeds might be a good option. A 1 ounce serving has 4.7 grams of protein, but they are also high in fiber, which is supposed to help with cholesterol.

MM - your soy symptoms sound just like what happens to me when I eat more than a few bites of hummus.  Waking up in the middle of the night with hours of terrible cramping and feeling bad and then yeah, like food poisoning (the non-vomiting side).  Some other beans make me uncomfortable, but not a that level.  Beano has never helped.
If in your estimation there is a greater than 0% chance that I will later decide that I shouldn't have said that, please do not quote me.

You can be chickpea intolerant. Its a very similar protein to soy.

:sidesplit:

I am going to give the diet thing an honest try for three months and then give in if it doesn't work.

I need to do some more research on supplements that are supposed to help...I am always suspicious of supplements.

I'm an N of 1, but I have found that fish oil pills have helped my cholesterol immensely. Last I checked, larger studies don't show that they are effective for lowering cholesterol, but for me they have been. As a side note, I started taking them for dry eye, not cholesterol, but since I have been taking them my cholesterol levels have been really, really good despite very little change in diet (my diet is ok...not awful, not spectacular.) They aren't that expensive and most people tolerate them so it might be worth a shot.

Has it helped your dry eyes?  Because I'd try that.  (My cholesterol is fine.)

Yes it has. If I skip a few days I can tell a difference. The biggest helper was switching to systane nighttime stuff, eye drops

Fish oil is also good for inflammation. I do not take it being veg, but i recommend it to my patients.

I use nature’s made. They sell it at Kroger, typically BOGO. (Don’t know if u have Kroger, it is sold lots of places but found that is the cheapest place.)

They do have a burpless variety. I don’t bother with that because it doesn’t bother me. I take 2000mg a day (or 2400 if I buy the 1200 mg.) you can take more than that but I haven’t needed to.

Someone told me castor oil was great for dry eyes.
