What is a good substitute for ground beef?  I would like to cut down on fat and cholesterol.  I am in the low 200's in cholesterol but high in good cholesterol so my health screener is not recommending drugs yet.
I don't like garden burger taste which is probably soy based.  What could I substitute for say like spagetti dishes?  Thanks.  Leighton Loo  

Hello Leighton!

   Thank you for your nutrition question.  I would recommend either ground turkey breast or ground chicken breast instead of ground beef. You could use either of these in spaghettie sauce.  Both contain less fat and less cholesterol.  Here is a recipe for you to try out that I think you might like.
          Turkey Burritos
Easy to make, these special low-fat burritos taste
  awesome!  These are medium spicy, not
  fire hot!
  Prep Time: approx. 5 Minutes. Cook Time: approx.
  20 Minutes. Ready in: approx. 25 Minutes. Makes 6
  burritos (6 servings).
1 pound ground turkey
2 (7 ounce) cans hot tomato sauce
1 (15.25 ounce) can whole
  kernel corn, drained
1/2 small onion, diced
1 (16 ounce) can fat-free
   refried beans
1 (16 ounce) container fat
  free sour cream
3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat
  Cheddar cheese
6 (10 inch) flour tortillas

1 In a large skillet over medium high heat, brown ground
  turkey. Stir in tomato sauce, corn and onion. Reduce heat to
  medium and let simmer, stirring occasionally, until liquids
  reduce (about 20 minutes).
2 In a separate medium skillet, heat beans over
  medium-low heat. Prepare sour cream and cheese for sprinkling
  into burritos. One by one, heat tortillas over stove burner
  for 1 to 2 minutes, flipping a few times. Top with beans,
  then meat mixture, then sour cream and cheese. Fold over
  and serve while still warm.
