So, I'm not so hot at incorporating vegetables. I watched Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead on Netflix this week. Thinking about doing a juicing reboot for 10 days, and my cousin has offered to let me borrow her juicer so I don't have to invest in a couple hundred dollar machine to try this out.

I started some krill oil to try to raise my HDL. I've been so frustrated that this low number hasn't improved with exercise, diet changes, weight loss. Then I did some research and learned that the krill oil dose that I've been using is the anti-inflammatory dose and not an HDL raising dose. Arg! I've done some research and I'm going to try Neptune krill oil at the 1500mg dose for several months and we'll see what happens.


  1. Thanks for sharing Sarah! I am not good with veggies either sigh :( I hate to admit my dumbness but what on earth is krill oil? and what do you do with it? Also do you eat cottage cheese by itself or cook with it?? I have never been bold enough to taste it except cooked in a dish. I have some now to go in a spinach and cheese ww quiche. You are doing amazing with your weight loss. I hope I can get where you are! Ive only lost just over 20 lbs and after this week that may be less. We will see what tomorow brings. Sending hugs to you.

  2. Info on krill oil: It is in gel cap form like fish oil, but are usually in smaller gel caps and people report less burping with krill oil.

    Cottage cheese is great with some fresh pineapple or canned peaches sweetened with pineapple. Blows me away that you've never had it by itself. Large curd cottage cheese was one of Hannah's favorite baby foods. She'd pick up the curds off her high chair tray and feed them to herself one by one.
