"They ate it up with no bitching so 5 Stars"

I've never read higher praise.
Haahha, a literal laugh out loud

I know that saturated fat is worse for high cholesterol than dietary cholesterol -- but, aren't shrimp high in dietary cholesterol?

I do best diet-wise browsing the cookbooks geared towards favorite foods and the quick preparation ones than a lot of the diet ones (although the lower sugar, lower carb, lower fat ones have had some winners) so long as they include nutrition counts. My husband is type 2 (diet rather than insulin-injection controlled) diabetes and most of the diabetes cookbooks weren't useful (strangely high in sugars and carbs, presumably to offset insulin and prevent low blood sugar) -- but, many of the low carb ones were.

My library had Trader Joe's cookbooks in their ebook program (they use overdrive) -- some tasty and healthy things in those.

And cookbooks emphasizing flavor — like herbs, spices and rubs — that can be adapted to perk up some of the more boring healthy recipes. "The Herbal Palate" by Maggie Oster is a favorite. I like substituting higher fiber anything as a magic bullet for all kinds of health issues -- like cannelini beans in place of pasta in soups.

She said to just watch the intake of sat fat, watch cheese, no ice cream, keep meat to lean cuts twice a week, fish more often and try following this "Mediterranean" way of eating because it has been studied and is known to lower counts and keep people healthier and lean. Of course, I picked out a recipe with high cholesterol counts for my first meal, lol. I'm going to sub out a recipe or two a week and keep up with my 80 Day Obsession workouts and see how it goes. My husband likes pizza and ice cream A LOT so that is stopping now because if it is in the house I will eat it :) I'll check out your recs, thanks! We eat pretty healthy in general but can always do better.
