I have to confess, sometimes I skip breakfast.
The morning gets busy and once I start working, I forget to fuel up. Inevitably, I crash and realize I haven’t had anything to eat. And coffee doesn’t count. I wish it did, but it just doesn’t count as a whole fuel. So part of my pledge for a healthier, happier new year is a little breakfast. Any suggestions?
A message from our friendly neighborhood expert…
A healthy diet should include 25-35 grams of fiber per day. Fiber helps to lower blood cholesterol, regulate blood sugar and aids in weight control. A diet adequate in fiber can improve satiety and appetite control. Start your day with a fiber-rich breakfast and include a variety of whole grains, fruit, vegetables and legumes throughout the day. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water. It helps fiber perform its important functions.
