Just For Women Are you getting enough fiber? According to Dr. Padma Garvey, local mom and Hudson Valley Parent blogger, the biggest nutritional deficiency in America is fiber. A diet rich in fiber can lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease. Foods rich in fiber can also make us feel fuller longer. This full feeling will help when the need to snack hits mid-afternoon! Dr. Garvey suggests a plant-based diet full of fiber rich foods like lentils, black beans and spinach. She insists that if people would fill their meals with more fiber, their diets would be healthier overall. She says, "If people were instructed to simply eat more fiber per calorie then they would naturally eat a low oil, unprocessed, whole grain, plant-based diet." Check out Dr. Garvey's blogs on for some fiber fueled recipes that are sure to satisfy.
