Very Happy
In my own Dr. Morris' diet, I thought it would be a good idea to share how this diet was developed so that others can benefit from its anti-cancer components. Some of the following information was found on the internet, so please ask if you want the source information.

Today, I'll 'tout' Dietary fiber. It is very important for health promotion and disease prevention. Dietary fiber reduces cholesterol levels, normalizes blood sugar levels, and promotes bowel regularity.

Here are some of the common categories of Dietary Fiber:
Cellulose, found in bran, legumes, peas, root vegetables, cabbage family, outer covering of seeds and apples
Hemicellulose, found in bran and whole grains
Gums, found oatmeal, barley and legumes
found in apples, strawberries and citrus fruits
Lignin, found in root vegetables, wheat, fruits with edible sees (such as strawberries)
Resistant Starches, found in ripe bananas, potatoes

Practically speaking, I usually open a can of mixed beans, drain them well, then pack 1/2 cup portions into zip lock bags, freeze them. I try to put some beans on whatever, daily!
To health!
