Eat Rye Bread for Fiber

April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 137

You've seen all the commercials about fiber. Fiber can be wonderful for your body and health. Your doctor tells you to eat more fiber, your spouse tells you to eat more fiber, even your neighbors are telling you to eat for fiber. But, why exactly should you eat more fiber. The main benefit is that it keeps you regular, and that means have regular bowel movements. All the benefits of fiber and what it can do for you is better serve to be written in another article because it is long and exhaustive. I'm here to tell how to get fiber in your diet and a very easy way. Some of you may already be doing this and some of you maybe missing out and this changing one simple purchasing decision.

What am I talking about? I'm talking about rye bread. It is high in fiber and other nutrients compared to just plain white or wheat bread. One slice of rye can contain 4 grams of fiber! Yes, you read that right. That's around 10% of the recommend fiber intake for the day for a 2000 calorie diet. If you ate 2 slices of rye bread, say you're eating a sandwich, then you'll have 20% or more of your fiber needs for the day.

And if you're a baker or like to bake foods you can search the Internet for a ton of rye bread machine recipes to follow and experiment. Do you know how much fiber is in plain white bread? Plain white bread contains only.6 grams of fiber. That means if you're eating a sandwich with plain white bread instead of rye you are getting 1.2 grams of fiber instead of 8 grams.

The next time you are in the supermarket and have to make a choice between choosing white or rye to buy, think about what you are putting in your body. Or if you are ordering a sandwich from your favorite deli or making a sandwich for your kids, just an easy and simple switch to rye bread instead of white can mean having almost seven times as much fiber for your and your kids diet. For the next loaf that you bake, use a rye bread machine recipe instead of sourdough.

Fiber is recommended by every doctor and nutritionist as part of a healthy whole diet. In our fast pace lifestyle these days it is becoming harder and harder to keep track of everything we eat and read all the labels in the supermarket that we buy, but if you want more fiber in your diet, remember to buy rye instead of white bread.
