I love salt. Salt loves me. But is it a healthy relationship?
What the wha?
Quaker Oats waxes poetic about the cholesterol-reducing benefits of their oatmeal, but I have never seen a Frito Lay ad promote pretzels’ power — but they do the very same thing!
So do nuts and popcorn (sans oil and butter) and homemade potato chips!
And to think I have given the statin I take all the credit for my lowered cholesterol. Turns out my addiction to salty snacks may have helped just as much.
Okay, maybe not as much…but I sure enjoyed them more.
Fruit and hummus, two foods I eat several times a week, also help lower cholesterol. Who knew? I sure didn’t.
Actually, now that I read the list, I’m wondering why I have high cholesterol at all. It’s certainly not from my diet. I eat all kinds of foods that help keep my numbers down.
Oh right — I inherited it. I’d rather have money.
