Add These Two Fiber-Rich Foods to Your Diet

February 26, 2015 6:02 pm

One of the most effective ways to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight is by adding more fiber to your diet. Men under the age of 50 should eat 38 grams of fiber each day and women should eat 25 grams, according to current dietary recommendations. If you’re not sure which foods to choose to meet this daily need, here are two surprising sources of fiber to incorporate into your diet.

  1. Apples. This old-school snack is a remarkably good source of fiber, with 4 grams per medium-sized apple. Any food that contains more than 3 grams per serving is considered a good source, so adding one to your day actually might keep the doctor away.
  2. Avocados. This creamy fruit is a super source of fiber. One medium avocado contains 14 grams, along with vitamins B, E and K. While they are high in fat, only 4 grams are saturated so you’re actually boosting your healthy fat intake.

February 18, 2015 5:03 pm

River Thai Food is a favorite dining spot for speedy service, tasty authentic Thai cuisine and friendly service. The small number of tables at this Edgewater Thai restaurant makes for a cozy meal dining-in, but also encourages take-out. Start out your meal with a tasty appetizer like Crispy Tofu, Steamed Veggie Dumplings, Chicken Satay Skewers, or Crispy Calamari. Glass Noodle Salad and Duck Salad with green apple, pineapple & cashews are also on the menu. Entrees all come with your choice of protein – choose from tofu, chicken, beef, shrimp, pork or mixed seafood. Pad Thai is favorite noodle dish, as is Pad Kee Mao, also known as Drunken Noodles. Panang Curry is a spicy mixture of string beans & bell pepper in a flavorful coconut curry sauce. Just a short distance from Windsor at Mariners, River Thai Food is open for lunch and dinner every day.
