Easy hacks for eating more fruits, veggies and fiber

Eating the recommended 12 daily servings of fruits and vegetables may seem daunting, but it becomes easier if you remember to eat the rainbow. In this Cityline TV appearance, functional medicine expert Bryce Wylde demonstrated easy hacks for creating colorful and nutritious meals. He also explained why you may also want to include Sunfiber in your daily diet.  

A balanced diet gives you energy, helps fight disease, supports a healthy body weight and boosts your mood. Wylde explains that the body needs micronutrients that can only be found in nature, not in the breads, pastas and crackers that are staples for many. 

Watch to see how easily he works 12 servings of fruits and vegetables into his diet using his “3 S rule” which stands for Smoothies, Salad and Soup: 

  • Have a smoothie or a shake in the morning.
  • Enjoy a salad for lunch.
  • Include a vegetable soup with your evening meal  

Because most of the fiber in fruits and veggies is insoluble, Wylde recommends supplementing with Sunfiber to make up for the common soluble fiber deficiency. “You can mix it into your soup or your shake. Or you can mix it into water,” he explains while demonstrating how it mixes clearly and is taste-free.  

Wylde likes to pair Sunfiber with the Japanese practice Hara Hachi Bu, which means “eat until you’re 80% full.” If you have a tablespoon of Sunfiber before each meal, “you’ve filled your stomach 20%, there’s only 80% left to fill. That will help you lose weight, become more regular, decrease your bloat and supply the good bacteria, the probiotics, with all that they need.” 

Prebiotic Sunfiber feeds the healthy bacteria in your gut and helps balance your microbiome. It moves food through your digestive tract at just the right pace, so you’ll feel less hungry. 

One more reason to love Sunfiber: “It’s a regulating fiber. It won’t make you go too much. It won’t constipate you,” says Wylde. Which of these products with Sunfiber will you try first?
