#122 Are You Getting Enough FIBER?

In order to keep the pipes flowing in my body I needed to add more fiber to my diet.  Me and the hubby decided to add some Fiber One to our everyday salad.  This is the claims for Fiber One:

14g Dietary Fiber

Do you see that -- Dietary Fiber at the bottom?  Just by adding a 1/2 cup you are getting a whopping 14g of fiber.  According to the Institute of Medicine, women need 25 grams of fiber per day, and men need 38 grams per day.  WebMD Article.  It was noted that the average American only eats 15g of fiber per day.  I've been eating this Fiber One two ways:  a bowl of cereal or using the cereal as croutons in my salad.

Add a 1/2 cup or more to your salad as croutons

While I'm sharing -- I also want to share what I found at the Dollar Tree.  It's cheese!  I love white cheese on my salads and I was out of my usual white cheese so while in the Dollar Tree I stumbled upon this:

6oz. package found in the refrigerator section of Dollar Tree

As you know, cheese can be pricey.  I love me some Pepper Jack and this was a great find.  I had to share!  It was "DELISH!"  I added it to my Graty which shreds it up to top off my salad.

Fiber One Adds that Extra "Crunch"

Not a bad way to add more fiber!!

Until next time...
