In brief: Vegan diet

With good balance, this is a very healthy diet.
The nutritional factors you might want to consider are those that come for most people with meat such as iron, vitamin b12, and vitamin d (depending on whether you drink milk or dairy products). Congratulations on your success with your cholesterol!
