Fiber, Freshness & Plant-based Protein

Posted Aug 26 2008 4:18pm



Fiber

Fiber can lower blood cholesterol. At least 20 to 35g of fiber should be taken per day. Fiber can be classified into soluble and insoluble: soluble fiber can be found in oaks, barley, dry beans, apple, orange, pear and carrot while vegetables and whole grains are good examples of insoluble fiber.



Freshness

Fresh foods such as fruits and vegetables are non-processed and do not contain salt. This will limit your intake of salt.



Plant-based Protein

You should replace meat with beans and bean products a few times a week. Plants do not contain cholesterol though some (such as coconut) may contain fats.
