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.

What our clients are saying

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“I hope you do the food service in heaven.”

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“The CulinArt team has been great to work with and has been super flexible. Having worked with other dining services at different institutions, having a dining team that is open to menu changes has been a great resource for our events. ”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“I would like to thank you and your staff for helping to make our Annual Holiday Party a Great Success.  You did an Amazing job from the décor, the food and the service you provided! I have heard nothing but great comments. As always, I enjoyed working with you and your team.”

“Thank You for once again going above and beyond to ensure that our programs are a success. Your willingness to customize menus as well as provide your expert guidance to develop a well-rounded selection of offerings is what keeps us coming back! The food is always exceptional! Our programs would not be a success without the CulinArt team!”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”
