Fiber is Your Friend ... Eat your Veggies!

Darlings, that awful Mary has had the Fab locked in the bottom drawer of the vidmar for the last few days.  The vidmar (in this case) is a heavy set of tool drawers, where Mary keeps her grinder.  Just as well darlings, Mary has spent a goodly part of the last few days with said grinder, inside a steel tank, removing rust and rough spots.  Great arm work out by the way. The Fab is thanking her lucky stars that she was nowhere near that dust.  No beehive do could withstand that amount of powdered steel, or the flying yellow hot sparks that come flying off the grinder.  The Fab's do would go up in flames!

Where was I?  Oh, yes, fiber.

Darlings, fiber is your friend. Fennel, celery, spinach, apples, broccoli, cauliflower, kale are all full of fiber.  It will keep you feeling full longer.  Plus Bonus!  The time you will spend brushing and flossing after eating these items gives your stomach time to let you know that it is full.

Now, Mary when she knows that she is going somewhere where the food pushers are going to be out in full force, grabs a glass of water and a tablespoon of fiber in a jar, mixes, drinks.  Takes the edge off.  Makes it possible for her to say a polite "No thank-you" to tempting treats instead of just, oh, say, grabbing that cookie or whatever out of the offering hand and stuffing it in her face as fast as she can.  Please note Darlings, I am telling you what Mary does, not suggesting that you do it.  Consult your medical professional, nutritionist, read and follow all label directions all the usual.  I mean, Mary also downs two shots of brown liquor before she goes out too.  She has social issues.  But she is as regular as all giddy-up.

Some of Mary's favorite ways to add fiber to her diet?
