Bring on the Fiber

Oatmeal FoodiesFeed
 

I adamantly believe in the benefits of eating a diet rich in fiber. I've seen so many health concerns corrected just simply by increasing fiber in the diet. As we know, fiber aids in digestion and elimination, helps prevent heart disease, helps control blood sugar, and prevents diseases of the digestive tract. High fiber diets also prevent obesity.

The most common reason we aren’t able to stick to our diet or nutrition goals is that we don’t feel satiated by what we are eating. This list is a great reference for incorporating fiber rich foods, and seeds that have the power to keep us happy, healthy and FULL.
