  • I swapped Avocado for mustard, a couple of months ago. And I've seen some difference in my Cholesterol numbers. I love Avocado so this was an easy swap for me. I have also switched to low sodium turkey and ham from Publix, as they are the only ones who sell Boarshead lunch meat in TN. - by TWIN0911
