This is a variation of Amanda’s (Amanda left our kitchen when she had baby Carly) Green Potato Salad with Cilantro and Spinach featured in our Blue Ribbon Edition cookbook. This time of year is perfect for potato salad, and including lentils adds loads of nutrition too. Try this recipe, you’ll love it!
Last month, we looked at what fiber is, and touched on what it does. I explained (or at least I tried to) the differences and similarities between soluble and insoluble fiber. This month, I want to explain why the differences between soluble and insoluble actually matter, and then get into specifics on:
- detoxification and liver health
- weight management
- cholesterol and heart disease
- regularity and colon health
- diabetes and metabolic syndrome
Finally, next month, I want to go over specific types of fiber, and fiber-rich foods.
