Nutritional Tip of the Day

Choose vegetables with a high fiber count over vegetables with a low fiber count. Your body digests fibrous carbs for much longer than non-fibrous carbs. When you eat vegetables with little to no fiber your pancreas has to secrete a large amount of insulin to balance the glucose in your blood. When your body produces this large amount of insulin it makes it much harder for your body to burn fat.

Examples of vegetables with a high fiber count:

-Broccoli

-Cabbage

-Cauliflower

-Green Peas

-Artichoke
