FIBER. For all those who suffer with constipation: add fiber to your diet. Yea, you've heard this so many times it's incredible. And personal. Come on, who wants to admit to anyone else that you have a need to "go" but no going is going on?
I have had this problem off and on for years, but after my stomach surgery, I found it increased. Since no one really likes to talk about these things in the "open", you'll know now that I am different! I guess that's because I am here to help make a difference~!
Anyway, I have found Greek yogurt to be so much healthier than the regular yogurt on the shelf. It's not as sweet and it has much more protein. Chobani is my choice of treats. I've tried several brands, but Chobani is tops on my list and it's the only one on my list. That has nothing to do with fiber...so far.
Like those little crunchy things they add to make it more appealing? Well, don't go for the granola fat; go for adding fiber. I'm glad you asked, "how?" Grape Nuts. Remember when we used to laugh at old people for getting their fiber and Grape Nuts jokes? Well, I found out by getting older that it really isn't a joke!!! This is real life I'm talking about.
I add about 1/4 to a small 1/3 cup of Grape Nuts to my Chobani yogurt. I have a complete meal of protein and fiber. And Grape Nuts aren't stones like the jokes say. They are really good mixed in to make the crunch you want.
Try it--you may just find you like it~! When the "going" gets rough, get "going" with Grape Nuts~! Now you can laugh. Now go try it.
