*****************MORE FIBER-MORE POWER***************
The Mayo clinic says that dietary fiber is an essential part of a healthy diet. Fiber found in grains, legume, fruits and vegetables plays a role in relieving constipation as we all know; but it is also vital to lower blood sugar for Diabetics, aid in weight loss, it also lowers your chances of contracting diabetes or heart disease. If you already suffer from these diseases then eat more fiber....Unlike the fats,carbohydrates,and proteins which the body breaks down and absorbs, fiber cannot be digested so it is expelled, but as it is being expelled it will carry lots of other fecal matter with it, It also helps to clean the walls of the intestines allowing them to be relieved of the rotting fecal matter that causes, cancers, diverticuli, ulcers and other colon ills, also quick expelling of waste helps the body to digest faster so that it is less loggy, Digestion really slows down the body. If you think of the operations of the body like your computers memory you can see that the heavy-duty job of digestion; Esophagus, stomach, 26 feet of small intestine, and 3-5 feet of large intestine or colon, and not to mention the liver, kidneys, blood vessels, and pancreas all working to aid in this process and you see that our systems memory is fully engaged. Fiber can shove everything through so much faster so our lives aren't always logged down with the laborious, and exhaustion processes of digestion, not to mention the poisons released as digestion is going more slowly and rotting before it's eventual evacuation from the colon. Fiber is divided into two kinds, Soluble and insoluble.
~The soluble is the kind that dissolves in water to form a gel-like mass it is found in:oats, peas, beans, apples, citrus fruits, carrots, barley and psyllium, to help in lowering Cholesterol and blood glucose.
~The insoluble as found in: Whole-wheat flour, wheat bran, nuts and many vegetables sources help the body push waste matter through the intestines.
I have a recipe for you, I call it bean soup.
1 1/2 C. Pinto beans soaked for a few hours, rinsed and drained a couple of times, then gently boiled for an hour or so until soft.
Then in another pan I sauté tiny bits of chicken breast[1 cup] and  onion chopped, I add sea salt, pepper, celery seeds and Katy's essence spices to taste [actually a bit strong because it will dilute in the beans. Also I add 3 Tbs of chia seeds and any other veggies I have on hand; green peppers, broccoli, bok choy chopped small so all the bits are the size of the beans. Then I boil it a bit longer to blend the flavors, Serve and eat, this makes maybe three bowls or more! of extremely yummy soup.
~~~Katy's Spicy essence~~~
I've sent this out to friends all over the US because when I make it every year I make a lot!
When I say a part I use a bottle of spice, it can be any size as long as all 'parts' are about the same size. Experiment, use your favorites, don't stick with the strict formula, I don't.
2 1/2 parts of paprika [I love paprika anyway]
2 parts salt[I use sea salt](you can use more sea salt,not harmful like table salt)
2 parts garlic powder- use the kind that says it's just garlic, no preservatives.
1 part black pepper
1 part onion powder
1 part cayenne powder
1 part Italian herbs or basil, oregano, parsley from your garden
1 part crushed red pepper
2 parts chili powder
put it all in your food processor to grind up the Italian herbs and crushed red pepper so it's Incorporated well into the other spices which are powders.
I usually make a double batch to last a year, we snarf this stuff, I put it in re-marked spice bottles that the ingredients came from, I then save then as I empty them so I'll always have bottles to keep it in. Most of the people I know love it too. I have to admit it's a revised version of the Emmeril Legasse's essence which includes MSG. I don't use any MSG.
I try to eat lots of raw veggies, including a spinach salad often, drink a green veggie juice cocktail twice every day, I eat seeds, and nuts and beans; and I'm taking CellPower™ because for one thing it does have lots of digestive enzymes in it, also it helps to balance the pH levels and is antibiotic, anti-viral-and anti-fungal AND IT PACKS THE CELLS WITH LIFE-GIVING OXYGEN, AND ENERGY. And:SELENIUMhelps immune system,fights infection and aids circulation
~MAGNESIUMhelps to relax you, aids stress and muscle relaxing
~CHROMIUMimproves insulin sensitivity, and helps lower blood sugar.

A little boy goes to his father and asks "Daddy, how was I born?"
The father answers, "Well, son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway! Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe. We sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a little Pop-Up appeared that said: "You got Male!" .

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning.
The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee".
The husband said, " You are in charge of the cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee."
Wife replies, "No you should do it, and besides it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee."
Husband replies, " I can't believe that, show me."

Four men were bragging about how smart their dogs were. One man was an engineer, the second man was an accountant, the third man was a chemist, and the fourth was a government worker.
To show off, the engineer called to his dog. "T-square, do your stuff." T-square trotted over to a desk, took out some paper and a pen, and promptly drew a circle, a square, and a triangle.
Everyone agreed that that that was pretty smart.
The accountant said that his dog could do better. He called to his dog and said, "Spreadsheet, do your stuff." Spreadsheet went out into the kitchen and returned with a dozen cookies. He divided them into four equal piles of three cookies each.
Everyone agreed that that was good.
The chemist said that his dog could do better still. he called to his dog and said, "Measure, do your stuff." Measure got up, walked over to the fridge, took out a quart of milk, got a ten-ounce glass from the cupboard, and poured exactly eight ounces without spilling a drop.
Everyone agreed that that was pretty impressive.
Then the three men turned to the government worker and said, "What can your dog do?"
The government worker called to his dog and said, "Coffee Break, do your stuff." Coffee Break jumped to his feet, ate the cookies, drank the milk, claimed he had injured his back while doing so, filed a grievance report for unsafe working conditions, put in for worker' compensation, and went home for the rest of the day on sick leave.
They all agreed that that was the most impressive of all.
