Week 3 – Day 5

Fiber – Fiber – Fiber…
Adding fiber to your diet is a great way to head of, or improve type-2 diabetes. You need at least 25 grams of fiber per day, and one great easy way to get fiber is to add black beans to your diet.

Black beans contain 15 grams of fiber per cup, and about 15 grams of protein. Their dark, rich color signals a high content of flavonoids, plant pigments that are powerful antioxidants. As you add beans and other high-fiber foods to your diet, be sure to drink more water, too.
