Try these delicious pancakes made with high fiber almond flour, oats, and flax seeds.  Check out these 5 reasons to eat a diet high in fiber:

  • Promotes weight loss:  Since fiber takes longer than refined carbohydrates to digest, you feel full longer and eat less. Also, foods rich in fiber, particularly fruits and vegetables, are usually lower in calories but packed with nutrients.
  • Good for your heart:  It lowers LDL (“bad”) cholesterol.
  • Deters Type 2 diabetes:  A high-fiber diet promotes healthy blood sugar and insulin levels because it slows down the absorption of sugar into your blood.
  • Combats cancer:  Fiber benefits the digestive system because it acts like a broom, whisking toxins through the body while foods high in fiber, such as fruits and vegetables, are also high in antioxidants and potent in fighting cancer.
  • Improves your diet:  A healthier, high-fiber diet means more nutrient-dense foods, so it results in more energy, brain health, beautiful skin and hair and a reduced risk of many chronic diseases.
