All semester long, NYU professor and James Beard Award-winning nutritionist Marion Nestle is answering questions for the university's student-run paper, Washington Square News. Today she tackles fiber. According to Nestle, the benefits of fruits, vegetables and whole grains trump supplements and most Americans “get less than half the fiber you need.” This recipe for Lentils with Chicken Sausage is a healthy take on British bangers and mash, with legumes in place of mashed potatoes for a fast weeknight way to add nine grams of fiber to your daily intake.
