Fact: A lion’s intestinal tract is short. (In meat, out meat.) A cow’s digestive system is loooonnng. In grass, (24 hours later), out grass (seriously… they have four stomachs).
Falling somewhere in between, humans manage to keep a lot of crap in their system. Stuff we shouldn’t have in there, stuff that is too hard for us to digest, stuff that we can’t digest because our digestive systems are run down or exhausted. When the going gets tough, it helps to have a friend.
Fibre is your friend. You know this. You’ve read it on cereal boxes (so it must be true). If you can find a way to stuff more fibre in your system than cheese, (a task which I find to be monumental most days) you should be off to the races. (and that’s colloquial for having regular… regularity)
One way to conquer this?

2. Put it in the Blender
