I hope each and everyone of you had a weekend filled with greatness and benefit. Today I bring you something that is sure to be filled with greatness and benefit and that would be fiber. Fiber is such an very important part of our diet. There are many types of fiber as well as many ways you can get a good fiber intake. Let's talk about a few:
Soluble fiber- This fiber dissolves in water . These types of fiber are the likes of Oats, beans, Apples, Bananas, some vegetables and psylluim.
Insoluble Fiber- This fiber increases the movement of material through your digestive tract. This types of fiber can be found in the likes of, Whole Wheat foods, nuts, and many more.
Fiber is also great for weight control, controlling diabetes, preventing heart disease, aids in cleaning out your colon, speeds up your metabolism, etc. I get fiber both through the foods I eat, and an additional boost of fiber 3x daily by taking my fave "Resolution fiber" . I like this fiber because it has a mixture of flax seed, chia seed, and psyllium seed powder.
I have used this fiber mixture both pre made, and at times I mix it together myself. In fact I am almost do to order more. I really dislike to be without my fiber. You know how some of us feel about being without that holy grail product for our hair. Well this is a holy grail product out of the many for my health, one I like to always have in stock.
Another great thing about fiber is that once taken. It swells in your stomach thus making you feel full once you eat your meal therefore suppressing your appetite, this is why is suggested to take 30 minutes before each meal.
Chia seed has a rich form of protein, antioxidants, and is one of the highest forms of omega 3 fatty acids just to name a few.
Psyllium and flax seed aids in regulating the colon and to flush waste. While holding waste makes you gain weight. It's recommended to drink with water or juice as they expand up to 5 times its bulk. Both Psyllium and flax seeds have a wealth of benefit.
When taking resolution fiber I normally take it with orange juice and often with water. As for a taste , It really doesn't have much of a taste . However if adding fiber to your diet, be sure to drink plenty of H2O.
Once mixed in your beverage it will then become sort of cloudy , you stir really good and drink up!
I order my fiber from no other than my favorite place bulk herb store http://www.bulkherbstore.com/Resolution-Fiber-Mix
$15.95 / 5 lb bag.
Some may think the price may be high, it's really not considering your getting three very beneficial ingredients in one. When buying these items separately it cost me more. So in my opinion its cheaper to buy this way. And for myself the health benefits out weigh the cost.
So ladies do share, what are the healthy food item's or mixture's you must have in your home?
And as always , thanks for stopping by. Take care, and remember to stay naturally healthy and fabulous!
