Steel Cut Oats

Steel cut oats are one of the least processed oat varieties. They contain slightly more fiber than other oat varieties. Steel cut oats in particular are rich in resistant starch which digests and absorbs more slowly than other carbs, hence keeping blood sugar levels more stable.

Yellow Popcorn

Popcorn is a delicious snack, and when prepared the correct way, it can be great for you as well. It is low in calories and a great source of fiber, which helps you feel full and keeps your digestive tract in check.
