Last week’s pop quiz (which food contains the most sodium) was a real eye-opener. How’d you do on that one?
Pop Quiz #2 will test how much you really know about fiber! I’ll let you in on a little secret with this one…..there MIGHT be a trick question now and then, so be careful 🙂
Question: Which food contains the most fiber?
a) four ounces of pork
b) four ounces of cheddar cheese
c) four ounces of milk
d) 4 ounces of yogurt?
(Consider the answer carefully, ignore the Jeopardy music playing in your head)
Hmmmm, pork, cheddar cheese, milk, or yogurt….
Which has the most fiber….
Here you go….
Answer: Sorry, it’s a trick question. I tried to warn you! 🙂 There is ZERO fiber in meat and dairy products. Fiber is only found in plant foods, and we should shoot for at least 45 grams of fiber daily to not only escort excess cholesterol and hormones out of our system, but to help regulate blood sugar and reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, dementia, and infections. The fiber from plants is superior to the man-made fiber found in pills, powders, and Fiber One products. Get at least 45 grams of fiber daily – from whole plant foods (it’s easy to do).
Stay tuned for pop quiz #3!
