Fiber Choice Get Picky Challenge: Getting Started

Hello Darlings!

When it comes to my morning routine I very rarely deviate from my lemon water and vitamins go-to wake me up. However, when Fiber Choice reached out and asked me to join in their 30 Day Get Picky Challenge I was curious. Being mostly veggie fueled, I had always thought that I was getting enough fiber in my daily diet, but know I have been slacking on the healthy eating during these summer months.

So I did a little research before I agreed to take on the challenge.  I focused on two questions: 1. What kind of fiber is in Fiber Choice? And 2: How awful will they taste?

 I found out that the main ingredient in Fiber Choice is Inulin, an all-natural fiber source that is found in lots of fruits and veggies. A natural pre-biotic it helps to maintain gut health, and is also soluble (meaning it can be broken down by water) and thus can be processed and used by the (good) bacteria in the colon- which is wonderful if you’re working toward or maintaining a flat stomach!

I was given a number of Fiber Choice formulas to pick from for the challenge: Fiber Choice® chewable tablets; Fiber Choice® Fruity Bites; Fiber Choice® Weight Management; Fiber Choice® Plus Calcium and Fiber Choice® Plus Antioxidants. I decided to go with the Fruity Bites because apparently I am still 5 years old and eating gummies as a supplement sounded like fun! I am so glad I did. I am quite picky when it comes to the texture of food in my mouth, so much so that I’m not a fan of hummus unless the chickpeas have had their skins removed prior to blending, so I was not looking forward to the textural challenge of adding fiber into my diet. The Fruity Bites don’t feel like what I assumed fiber did (just about the same texture as gummy bears!) and taste great!

I’ll be checking back in as my challenge progresses with a more in-depth review and to let you know how my belly is feeling!

Do you use a fiber supplement, if not which Fiber Choice variety would you choose? Let me know in the comments below!
