Do you know, increasing fiber in your diet is heart healthy and so much more… here is why. Fiber is great to support weight control, supports fullness and fends off hunger, helps improve blood sugar levels and cholesterol level, and support healthy bowels! Aim for 35 grams fiber each day!
Here is some ideas to increase and get even more fiber in your day –
- Switch out your morning blueberry muffin for whole grain (100% whole wheat) toast (like Dave’s Killer Bread) or whole wheat wrap – spread with peanut butter and add apple slices for a fiber rich and whole grain breakfast!
- Best choice always look for first ingredient as whole wheat or whole oats. Read the label look for fiber content.
- Try – oatmeal (1 cup) plus 1 tablespoon flax seed meal and 1 cup blueberries with 2 ounce fat free milk for a fiber rich breakfast or even lunch!
