Hi, Becky! Wow, that must have been quite a scare and shock! Good for you for exploring options and taking positive control of the situation. Yep, coke and potato chips are vegan, but they are far from healthful and far from "food" in my view. Unfortunately, a lot of people still consume them -- along with other vegan junk food -- and wonder why they don't feel well or aren't as healthy as they thought they'd be being vegan.

I think getting started on the Esselstyn plan will be the most challenging part. Once you get it sorted out, have a stash of recipes you can rely on, and get used to his approach, it will become routine. Please keep us posted on how it is going.

Good luck! And I hope the coming year brings a much lower cholesterol score for you!!!


P.S. Caldwell Esselstyn often speaks at the Vegetarian Summerfest, so if you go, you could meet and hear him in person!
