Benefits of Fiber

Fiber has been associated with a ton of health benefits. It can help prevent heart disease by reducing bad cholesterol, slow down how quickly food is digested in the body to stabilize blood sugar, and improve digestive health.

Dietary fiber can be found in foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grain products, legumes, nuts, and seeds. It’s important to include a variety of these fiber-full foods in your everyday diet because different types of fiber have different health benefits.

Here are some tips to help boost the fiber content of your meals:

  • Grind oats into oat flour and add to baked goods, breads, meatloaf, or veggie burgers.
  • Choose whole grain breads and add extra veggies to sandwiches and wraps.
  • Try whole wheat or bean pastas — yes, there are now pastas made from black beans, lentils, chickpeas, and edamame that are all great sources of fiber!
  • Volumize soups and stews with tons of added veggies. You can also add barley or quinoa to soups and stews for additional fiber.
  • Add beans or lentils to salads.
  • Blend fruits and veggies into smoothies.

With additional fiber, it is super important to stay hydrated! Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day to reap all the health benefits of fiber.

“You know that I haven't been home (India) for a long time now.  I miss my mama, I miss the food, I miss the smells, I miss the people. Starting yesterday, I started to smell my mama's kitchen at Parker.  I KNEW something Indian was brewing; I could smell the garam masala!  Thank you for the delicious tofu curry.  It made my belly and soul happy.”

Chef Jay and Chef Paul have been so awesome in the Hubbell Café.  There has been significant change, but they take it in stride and keep the delicious food coming.  We truly appreciate them!”

“Thank You! Chef Budd [and team], you overcame a new online ordering system (and hundreds of labels daily!), provided creative and healthy menus, continued to connect with local farmers to incorporate locally sourced ingredients, and worked tirelessly to serve the school community on three campuses.  While it feels like you are all a little like the Wizard of Oz right now, working behind a curtain in a kitchen far away, we sense your smiles and your passion to deliver the best possible service during these trying times. We are all so grateful!”
