I just had a full panel of blood work done and my cholesterol came back slightly high, 203. My triglycerides were slightly elevated too. I've been eating about 65% traditional foods for the past year and a half or so (not as much when I was pregnant) but I'm trying...Just curious if the combination of some processed food (occasional sugary snack, refined oils, and weekly pasta) is contributing to my cholesterol being elevated. I definitely believe in WAP principles, but I'm having a hard time eliminating all processed foods from my diet. I also don't always eat raw dairy..I get Kerrygold butter and use pasteurized cheese more often than raw, mainly for cost purposes. Anyone have any tips to help maintain my cholesterol? I would probably have a much easier time with the whole thing if my husband was more on board. He loves the fact that we get to eat a lot of meat and butter, but still likes to have his corn tortilla chips in the pantry all the time and is a sugar freak, which doesn't help me at all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Any tips?
