Choices to Make!
A high fiber diet may increase longevity. Oh…yes I am very aware of the benefits of eating a diet loaded with fiber.
- better digestion
- lower cholesterol
- less inflammation in the body
- and perhaps a longer life
What kind of fiber do I need to eat and how much??? It seems to be more “insoluble” fiber…specifically wheat grains, according to an article in the Archives of Internal Medicine this month. Wheat grains are the ones responsible for helping the body reduce inflammation and decrease risks to cancer
So what are my options in the whole grain family?
- Brown rice
- Bulgur (cracked wheat)
- Whole-wheat pasta or couscous
- Wheat berries
- Wild rice
Hmmm….well…these do not exactly fit my craving…perhaps some granola and maybe a little yogurt.
After a forage of the cabinets and fridge my selection is made…
