Getting Enough Fiber?

Getting Enough Fiber? Most Americans eat only half the recommended amount, but this nutrient has health powers too great to ignore. Fiber-rich foods help keep the bowels healthy and lower the risk of heart disease, obesity and diabetes. Serve fiber-rich foods like beans, whole grain breads and breakfast cereals and all types of fruits and vegetables, like potatoes, at every meal and snack.
