Apples are one of the most popular fruits worldwide, and for many great reasons. (Did you know the proverb "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" dates back to the 19th century?) Beyond being inexpensive, easy to pack and eat on the go, apples are a good source of fiber (eat the peel!), and are rich in anti-inflammatory antioxidants, Vitamin C, potassium, phosphorus, and calcium, which serve important roles in keeping the body healthy.
Is all fiber created equal? Nope. Eating the wrong fiber bar can be self-sabotage, and the leading fiber bar manufacturers don’t deliver on the promise of fiber. Fortunately, at FiberLove, we have the backs of eaters everywhere.
It’s well known that fiber is an important part of a healthy diet. Yet, few people know how intensely beneficial fiber can be. For example, did you know that a 2011 study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine determined that a high-fiber diet lowers overall risk of early death by 22%, and that the life-prolonging health benefits of fiber are most strongly associated with the fiber found in unprocessed whole grains, rather than in processed fiber.
Relationships are great. But sometimes it's hard to keep up with healthy habits when emotions are involved.
We were lucky enough to sit down with dietitian Jessica Katz, who answered some hard-hitting relationship-nutrition questions. Like: How can you trick your significant other into eating healthily? Is there a way to protect your heart with food? What steps should be taken to upstage a frenemy?
Press play to find the answers, then read on for more tips in Jessica's blog post, below!
