Why broccoli does not worth your fight with kids?
Can you eat 10 apples to meet the minimal threshold of fiber consumption? Maybe 2 pounds of Broccoli? I cannot. Maybe you need to find another way...
Most Americans consume about 10 to 15 grams of fiber a day.
This is twice as less as the FDA recommends:
- 25g of fiber for females
- 38g of fiber for males.
To fill the gap, you might hear a suggestion to eat a rainbow of fruits every day. But did you ever ask yourself why fruits have no nutrition facts labels?
Isn’t it because they’re so low in fiber?
I checked USDA database for nutrition facts and look what I found:
- 100g apples contain 2.4g fiber
- 100g broccoli contain 2.6g fiber
- 100g banana contain 2.6g fiber
- 100g strawberry contain 2g fiber
- 100g kale contain 2.6g fiber
Can you eat 10 apples to meet the minimal threshold of fiber consumption?
Maybe 2 pounds of Broccoli?
So we developed PLANETARIANS - snacks with more fiber than apples.
