Because the Reflection Analysis said so...part deux

All right, so we’re on a bean and grain kick. But hey, nutrimirror keeps screaming fiber at my mother and her wallet keeps screaming, “take it easy.” As before, mom went to her cupboards and refrigerator for ingredients. She chose bulgur (it’s the grain used in tabbouleh), garbanzo beans, fresh parsley, celery, red bell pepper and homemade white wine vinaigrette. Have you ever worked with bulgur? You don’t have to cook it; it just has to be soaked (equal parts grain to liquid) for 1/2 an hour. Once mom chose her ingredients, she added them to a bowl according to what she wanted to taste –just like she did with the black-eyed peas.

Here’s how great this little concoction is:

Bulgur: potassium, iron, fiber, protein, and chock full of all sorts of vitamins

Garbanzo beans: potassium, fiber, iron, and protein

Celery: vitamin K, fiber, and potassium

Red bell pepper: vitamins E and B6, fiber, and potassium

Parsley: vitamins C and K, iron, calcium, and fiber

Keep these foods in mind when NM tells you to get more fiber (and iron and vitamins K, E and B6, and protein) and you can come up with your own fiber rich salad.
