Getting the right amount of fiber in your diet is associated with excellent digestive health, lower incidence of obesity, and reduced risk for heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and even certain cancers. But say the word “fiber” and you may think of dry, tasteless cereals and gritty powder supplements stirred into beverages.
It seems like every day there’s a new fad when it comes to your health. Is it good to juice or not? Should you try the Whole-30 diet? Is gluten bad for you? With a myriad of questions like these floating around my office, I can always say with absolute certainty that no matter what your diet of choice is, there is one component that you need to make sure to include: fiber.
