Well into the New Year, many of our resolutions have fallen to the wayside, but don’t be discouraged! Put your health first this month.
February is Fiber Month and we're taking this often-dreaded nutrient and bringing it to life! Click for three ways to make it a priority without thinking too much!
Tip #1: Give it some heart.
A lack of fiber can result in cardiovascular disease. Why? Elevated cholesterol significantly increases the risk of arterial diseases, such as coronary heart disease and stroke. Beans, like the chickpeas found in our Channa Masala, can help boost your fiber for the better!
Tip #2: Tip the scales.
Don't let a lack of fiber sabotage your weight loss goals! It can increase satiety, and without it, you're more likely to overeat. Because high-fiber foods are digested slower than carbohydrates or sugars, they can help you feel full longer. When you need a hearty lunch during your busy workday, reach for our Balanced Vegetarian Palak Paneer.
Tip #3: Sugar and spice.
Keep your blood sugar levels in tact by consuming foods high in fiber throughout the day, like apples, pistachios, berries or hummus! BONUS: Research shows that dietary fiber found in food can reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes. For a tasty snack, give our Palak Paneer a try paired with your favorite whole grain-rich crackers.
