Eggless Egg Salad
I have been on a cholesterol-lowering regimen for over 5 months now. My total cholesterol has gone from 280 on July 29th to 209 on December 17th. It is definitely a lifestyle change, one that I will continue forever. And I’m fortunate my cholesterol can be controlled through diet and exercise.
Friends and family ask, “how’s it going?” To be honest, it’s kinda fun. I just choose to eat the foods higher in fiber, lower in cholesterol, ones that include the heart healthy oils. One of the best parts of cooking is the creativity, and this heart healthy cooking is no exception. Occasionally I eat my old favorites (like gorgonzola with truffle honey), just less frequently and in smaller portions. In fact, we will be having a Porchetta Party here next weekend! So I’ll be enjoying (a smaller portion of) that luscious crispy pork too, but I’ll probably have oatmeal for breakfast. And I’ll skip the leftovers.
Here’s a recipe I came up with after trying the eggless egg salad from Trader Joe’s. Theirs is pretty good, but doesn’t compare with good ol’ homemade.
