10 Health Tips For 2013: Eat More Fiber!

Filed under: FoodAdvice

Everyone makes a New Year's resolution to be healthier, but precious few actually follow through on it!

But what if there were simple ways you could improve your health?

Dietician Julieanna Hever says there are, and she has ten amazing tips for staying healthy in 2013!

Aim for more than 30 grams of fiber a day:

The U.S. Dietary Guidelines suggest an intake of 14 grams fiber per 1000 calories consumed daily. Diets high in fiber reduce your risk for cancer, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. Fiber keeps you full and lean and sustains steady energy. Foods highest in fiber include all beans, veggies, fruits, nuts, and seeds. Here is an example of how easy 50 grams of fiber looks in a 1600 calorie day:
   
Breakfast: 1 cup oatmeal with 1 cup blueberries an ¼ cup walnuts.
      
Lunch: 2 slices whole wheat bread with ½ cup hummus, ½ cup cucumber slices, and ½ cup tomato slices.

Dinner: 2 corn tortillas with 1 cup pinto beans, 1 cup brown rice, ½ cup salsa, and ½ cup guacamole.

Now that's a yummy and healthy way to eat!!

Check back with us every day for the rest of the year for more of the 10 Great Health Tips for 2013! Special thanks to Julieanna Hever!

QuickFit Tip Of The Day

Figs are a great source of calcium and dietary fiber. Fully ripe figs are plump and have a dark color. They are soft but not mushy and will have a bit of a syrup exuding from them. Avoid eating figs that are overripe because they have lost a lot of their nutritional value.

Subway is going to introduce three new vegan options for their health and cruelty conscious consumers.

They've been doing well with their veggie option but now they're going to go full blown vegan.

We bet there's a lot of happy people out there right now.

So now even vegetarians or just the heath conscious have even more, super healthy options!

Way to think healthy, Subway!

They've got the right idea.

So now it's not just basically fiber and green stuff… there's real protein in there too!

Skip the burgers! Go for healthy subs!
