Breakfast as usual- FIBER

Did you know that the average woman should eat 25g of fiber and the average man 38g. Unfortunately a majority, and I mean majority, of the population eats only 13g of fiber a day! Not eating enough fiber can lead to obesity, diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. Fiber has an inverse relation to high glycemic foods- what this means is that high fiber foods help regulate blood sugar and keep you full for longer. They also negate some of the absorption of fat and cholesterol into the body. These fiber cakes below give you 55% recommended fiber in only ONE cake. (The recipe is archived for you!)
  1. Homemade fiber cakes with blueberry jam (fiber cake recipe)
  2. Homemade muesli with banana and natural, unsweetened almond milk (Fie's muesli recipe with the addition of coconut, walnuts, and organic high-bran cereal)
  3. Sliced strawberries and bananas
  4. Fair trade-organic green tea infused with raspberries and ginseng

Yum :)
