High Fiber=Happy Disposition! 30 Grams per day of fiber is not so hard to do. Again, reading labels is in the forefront of my mind. I added a fiber drink every night before bedtime. It is a hard swallow, but, "drink it quickly" passes through my mind in those 30 seconds it takes to down the stuff!
I know it's summer, but soup is so easy and if you have the ingredients in the house, why not? It quells hunger really great too.
Ham & Bean Soup:
4 Cups defatted Chicken Broth
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 clove Garlic, minced
1 small Onion, diced
1 large Tomato-seeded & diced
1 large Zucchini sliced
1 can rinsed Pinto Beans
1 cup Arugula

Fesh Herbs such as oregano, basil lemon thyme or what every you have on hand

It is July 17, 2010 and I am feeling much better and WILL NEVER EAT NUTS AND SEEDS AGAIN!!!!!
Moral of this story: listen to your body, don't believe everything a Dr. tells you and don't wallow too long about your experience, it is just not productive. Get back on your horse and ride again..I am back up to speed on my cardio and am so addicted to it. I am clean eating and seeding the tomatoes at least..c'mon I am Italian!!!!!!
Talk to me people!
Love all of my followers XXXXOOOO
