This past year has been a year of trying to redefine myself in many ways and also become the best self I can be. A lot of that had to do with the different nutrients I was putting into my body or not putting into my body.
I did an overhaul this last year and realized one of the biggest things that you must have is fiber in your diet. The problem?
How do you make High Fiber Banana Bread?
Most of us don’t get the amount of fiber we need each day. That led me to making delicious High Fiber Banana Bread, that gives a great boost of fiber and also delicious bread too.
What about it makes it so great?
It has a natural psyllium fiber that gives you a serving of the fiber you need, but likely don’t always get from your daily diet.
Did you know it also helps lower cholesterol, which will reduce your risk of heart disease? That’s all by adding psyllium fiber to a heart-healthy diet.†
This is a pretty huge deal to me because I have genetic high cholesterol. I have had it since I was a young teen and in really good shape too.
Can you add Metamucil to recipes?
I have combined many different things along with Metamucil to help keep my cholesterol low because heart-disease is a leading cause of death in women too, not just men.
It’s nice that we can do things like just adding more fiber to our diet to really keep ourselves in good health.
This High Fiber Banana Bread was a delicious start to the morning, paired with a warm cup of coffee and a glass of water for a great little breakfast or snack throughout the day.
I simply added a tablespoon of Metamucil to the batter and it was not even noticeable either. Of course, I did have to let my husband know that it’s was a high fiber bread before he ate the whole thing.
Are you ready for a bite? If you need to add some fiber to your diet, I’m sure most of us do, this High Fiber Banana Bread is a tasty way to do just that.
†Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 7 grams of soluble fiber per day from psyllium husk, as in Metamucil, may reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol. One serving of Metamucil Powder has at least 2.4 grams of this soluble fiber. Consult a doctor if you are considering use of this product as part of a cholesterol-lowering program.
