Just a Couple Days Left of National Fiber Focus Month
With February coming to a close, so does National Fiber Focus Month, which is well worth consideration since, according to WebMD, most adults are getting much less fiber than what they need each day.
Fiber has been linked scientifically to such health benefits as decreasing blood cholesterol levels, which protects against certain forms of cancer; helping control weight be increasing satiety; not to mention day-to-day prevention of constipation. [Source: Today's Dietician]
Clearly, it would be to our long-term health advantage to work on getting more fiber in our diets! This is why I chose to create a Squidoo lens featuring some good recipes from our food blog that are high in fiber and have delicious flavor combinations for the month’s Food Club Challenge. I know when I get past the initial thought of adding more fiber to my diet meaning boring foods with little to no flavor, it is much easier to make sure my intake of this important nutrient is where it should be.
Check out my Squidoo lens and the recipes with fiber rich foods, and vote in the poll for which recipe you’d be most likely to try as you think about ways to add more fiber into your diet. We will all be healthier and raise healthier children if we do!
