an Asian vegetarian I knew ate a lot of sprouted grains, the sprouting process changes a lot of the starches into proteins which makes them more BG-friendly

That's a common misconception I'm afraid. The important issue with cholesterol and heart disease is that HDL cholesterol levels are high, and triglycerides are low. That leads to the lowest heart disease risk. Both of the outcomes result from low insulin levels, in other words a diet low in sugars and refined carbohydrates and higher in fats.
