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?

I cannot. 

So we developed PLANETARIANS - snacks with more protein than any meat, more fiber than any veggie.
