This recipe is packed with fiber. Fiber is the part of plant foods that your body can't digest. Beans, most fruits and vegetables, whole grain products, and nuts and seeds are good sources of fiber. Soluble fiber can help lower cholesterol. It also slows down digestion so that the body can absorb more nutrients and better control blood sugar levels. Insoluble fiber helps you get rid of waste and keeps you regular.
