Another good fiber day, my husband had pizza, and I had my pizza on eggplants! My husband doesn't like eggplant, so when I get it in the farm share, this is what we do. Eggplant slices make great little pizzas on the grill!

thanks ivory and paolina. reintroducing slowly. after he cleaned out my intestines and i avoided fiber, i think too much too fast would be a disaster :) added lettuce, tomato , kirby. canned sour cherries. nuts. still afraid of raw carrots, celery, crucifers, seeds and legumes (or pulses).
may add whole wheat bread tomorrow.

Read the article and eat most of the foods regularly except for pulses. May try adding more of them this week.

Not thinking ahead, I was out of range since last week and did not post early...here you go for this week though and I'm back in town, so here we go!

Fiber Up Mini-Challenge!

This is the 2nd of our 6 month rotation of Mini-Challenges. Sometimes we change them up but this one is a "tried & true", so we keep it near to the starting point.

For the new members: This team is set up for us to see Mini-Challenges during the month as follows:

2 weeks - Intake Mini-Challenge
1 week - Exercise Mini-Challenge
1 week - Self Esteem Mini-Challenge

This is week two of the month so here we go!
Fiber is necessary in our diets and our bodies for many reasons. Did you know that not getting enough fiber can actually cause you to GAIN weight? Have you been getting your 25-35 grams of fiber daily?

This week we'll concentrate on meeting our fiber goals and maybe create a new habit along the way. Read the following Spark article for suggestions on how to up your fiber intake:
tinyurl.com/3dbe6y

Remember, this is a mini-challenge, so you'll complete the challenge by getting your RDI of fiber at least 5 of the 7 days this Challenge is in effect. Make sure you post to this list how you are doing it that the other team members can learn from you too!

PS: It's important to keep up the water intake we started last week during this fiber mini-challenge!

Also, don't forget to log in your starting weight for this Challenge under the accompanying Weigh-In Forum. Good luck and fiber up!!!!
