One of the things that we are always cautioned about is the need for fiber in our diets. Having enough fiber not only helps with the digestive process, but it also goes along way towards preventing colon cancer and other bowel diseases. Most people do not get enough fiber in their diet anymore. Whereas, people used to eat a lot of vegetables and greens in their diet, now (especially in the more modern countries) our diet contains much more protein and carbohydrates and very little fiber foods. People often buy fiber products such as Metamucil to make sure they are getting enough fiber. One easy way to get plenty of fiber is to add it to foods that you bake, such as cookies or quick breads like banana bread. I use any boxed mix from the store, and then I add flax seeds (ground up), chia seeds, almond flour, coconut flour, and psyllium husks, as well as bran flakes or other bran cereal. Sometimes, you need to add a little bit more baking powder because the mix will be heavier than just the plain muffin mix is; but once it is baked, you have an easy and tasty way to add fiber to your morning meal.
