Congratulations on losing that 5lbs
My dad has been following Dean Ornish's plan for about 5 years now and is very happy with it.
I love to cook fresh and I have gotten to the point where I can't stand the taste of food that comes out of a can or frozen box
Once you cook fresh you can't go back!
I have started in the last year or two to eat more veggies and experiment a little more. I have been trying to incorporate soy into my diet but I am not a big tofu fan. I drink chocolate soy milk and have discovered some soy based puddings cups that I take in my lunch.
