Fiber supplements are one of those products that seems superfluous -- until you try it, and you wonder how you have ever lived without it. I spoke with a dietician and created a list of 3 EASY drink ideas that you can add your fiber supplement to. Don't get me wrong, mixing a fiber supplement with good ol' fashion water is still great, but it can be fun to switch up your fiber routine.
Let's talk about the fiber first. For these "fibertails" (okay, don't judge me, I'm still working on a nickname), I chose NB Pure's Pure Vegan Daily Multi-Fiber in the coconut lime flavor. Coconut and lime are two of my favorite flavors separately, but when put together ::chef's kiss::. I'm already drooling. NB Pure's Fiber also has a reputation for being incredibly healthy. It's the only fiber on the market that has insoluble and soluble fiber that can help decrease hunger and increase satiate hormones when ingested with a meal. It also means that meals containing soluble fibers are less likely to cause sharp spikes in blood sugar levels and may prevent them (good news for the diabetes world!). Ultimately, you feel fuller longer with it, it helps lower your cholesterol, and reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. It also has probiotics to help maintain glucose homeostasis, lipid regulation, and can help the risk of colon disease. So, what I'm trying to say is this fiber is legit.
Please enjoy these drinks, I know I did!
What's that? You'd like some other drink ideas? You can mix your fiber in with apple juice, coconut pineapple water, and even your favorite vegetable juice. This fiber was definitely made to be sipped and enjoyed, so do just that! I've also been playing around with dips, protein balls, and even popsicles with this fiber, so keep an eye on our blog for those recipes coming soon!
