This Month’s Nutrition Topic:

Fiber:
Fiber is very important to keep us healthy! It can help control blood sugars, keep you full longer, decrease cholesterol, and help improve constipation. See the document to the left for more information on how to include fiber. Notice, most fiber foods are from plants and many are included on the WIC food package for women and kids.

 

 


Recipe Corner:

Featured Recipe: Beef, Barley, and Bean Soup
This warm winter soup recipe gives some great ideas on ways to include fiber into your diet. A variety of veggies and beans provide great flavor, texture, and fiber to keep you full and prevent/improve constipation. Using one pot to make a recipe also decreases the amount of dishes and clean-up time!
