Achieve 1/3 of your Daily Fiber Requirements With Blendi Snacks
Many of us already know where to go and get our protein (chicken, steak, eggs nuts etc), but where do we head off to if our fiber intake is low? I know the first port of call for us would be a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice, a slice of brown bread , an apple or carrot, but as a snack ? Something quick & tasty ? …………
What exactly is Fiber?
It’s a carbohydrate found in plant foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains & beans, however unlike other carbs, it isn’t easily digested by your body, so it passes quickly through your system without causing your blood sugar to rise and therefore making you feel fuller. There has also been recent studies to show the connection between mood, & fiber all to do with the brain.
Not only do Beans provide essential fiber, they contribute to other areas of your wellness thanks to their high protein levels. The macronutrients of carbs, protein, and healthy fat also keep blood sugar levels steady . These are just a few of the reasons popular and trusted food websites recommend legumes as one of the top foods we should be eating.
According to WebMD , we consume only half the fiber we need each day. How much fiber should you be eating? WebMD states women should be consuming 25g of fiber per day, while men should be even higher with 38g of fiber daily. If you’re struggling to hit your fiber goals, a suggestion would be to add a Blendi Snack to your daily diet! Blendi can be consumed straight from the bag as a snack, or pour a bag of Blendi on top of your (salad, stir-fry) brings great taste, texture & 1/3 of your daily fiber daily requirements.
To put that into further context, it would take nearly two servings of berries or broccoli to achieve the grams of fiber found in a single bag of Blendi Beans.
