Vitamin K: Not Evil

While the recipes focus on little to no vitamin K exposure whenever possible, it’s important to recognize that vitamin K is not to be eradicated from your diet.  Vitamin K does provide support for bone health, improving insulin resistance, and potentially protecting cells that line blood vessels, including both veins and arteries.  Part of the monitoring INR levels means adjusting medication dose to suit lifestyle.  That might mean accepting that you need a little higher dose for a better long term lifestyle.

This link provides a rundown of what I would consider the “Oh my god NO!” offenders.  And various other lists exist on the internet with either generalized ratings or actual dose of vitamin K in a given food.  But beware that consuming large quantities of something with low vitamin K can lead to the same trouble – less vitamin K doesn’t justify having huge portions.
