You probably know that fiber is good for your digestive heath. Did you know that dietary fiber can also help lower your risk of diabetes and heart disease? Here are some delicious ways to get more fiber in your daily meals.
At breakfast, reach for a dry cereal with at least 5 grams of fiber. Oatmeal is also a good choice. Sprinkle with berries or chopped fresh fruit.
Switch to whole-grain breads for your lunch sandwich, and pile on the veggies. Ever had a whole wheat sandwich with peanut butter and shredded carrots or raisins?
If you serve pasta for supper, use a whole-grain variety. Add fresh or frozen broccoli or other green veggies to pasta sauces.
If you prefer rice over pasta, try brown rice, barley, quinoa or bulgur instead of plain white rice.
Up your fiber intake and keep both your digestive system and your heart working properly.
