This popular West Coast comfort food condiment combo layered on fries or burgers now fits perfectly into a plant-based diet with this Protective Diet remake. I overheard friends at the dog park discussing this hit-the-spot splurge they enjoyed post finals week while in graduate school.

My cholesterol readings have long been my biggest health issue. I was once tested as high as 333. I have been fighting being 20-50 pounds overweight most of my life. The only thing that ever seemed to lower my cholesterol before this was regular exercise. But, I could never get it below 285.
