    Top Round Egg Rolls and Rangoons

    I had some leftover top round from Saturday night and decided to make egg rolls and rangoons.
    Diced up the meat along with some garlic and green onion and added a bad of slaw mix.


    Made the mustard.


    Rangoons were stuffed with beef and cream cheese, little garlic and salt and pepper.

    Hey Stephen, what are you the cholesterol police? You asked me the same question on my FB food pics.

    I'll cop to cholesterol consciousness. At the time of my last lipid panel a year ago, my total cholesterol had crept up to Larry level (186), which is not considered alarmingly high. However, it was about 20 points higher than usual. 35% of all heart attacks occur among people with total cholesterol levels ranging between 150 - 199 mg/dl.

    I love Larry's (and your) dishes, but I indulge in them much less frequently than I once did. Unless controlled for, cholesterol levels tend to elevate as we age, so a diet that is more plant-based is an almost sure remedy to keeping it down. This is what Bill Clinton has opted for after multiple coronary events.




    From Cholesterol Primer:
    National guidelines tell us that 200 mg/dl is the highest healthy level of cholesterol in a person's blood. This may not be good enough. A substantial number of heart attacks still occur when a person's cholesterol level is below 200 mg/dl. Experts making this recommendation are using an American standard.

    If we take a broader world view, we see that in places where traditional diets are still followed, such as China, cholesterol levels are much lower. Heart disease is almost non-existent in places where blood cholesterol is very low. If your cholesterol is around 160 mg/dl or less, your risk of heart disease is virtually zero. This is the conclusion of both the Chinese Diet Study and the Framingham Heart Study (both landmark studies in the field.) A cholesterol level of 150 mg/dl is a safer standard than the 200 mg/dl recommended by American experts.

    Many, such as Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. John McDougall, Robert Kowalski, and the authors of The Stanford Life Plan For a Healthy Heart agree and all suggest a cholesterol level of 150-160 or lower.

    I agree with you Stephen 100% on being cholesterol conscious. We as SCI are more susceptable to higher cholesterol due to our slower metabolisms. I believe everything in moderation is the key. I have been lucky to keep mine at 146 through watching what I eat and excercise. Looking at some of Larry's great food porn does make to me want to over indulge!

    Good information. I cook a lot of food, some healthy some not as healthy and some plain down right unhealthy. With that said, I bet these runners that have a heart attack in the middle of marathons cholesterol was probably in the 'perfect' range and they still died without enjoying a decent meal! All jokes a side, it is good information Stephen.
