Can granola cause constipation?

Can granola cause constipation?

No protein?: Nope. This is dangerous and unwise. A diet that is 100% sugars is not a diet. It is a disaster for your organs, your brain, your immune system and your life. A healthy diet is a protein rich, low carbohydrate and low fat diet. You cannot survive without some fats and proteins in your diet. ...Read more

I am informed oatmeal, granola, fruit, yogurt smoothies and eggs are healthy-- what else?

I am informed oatmeal, granola, fruit, yogurt smoothies and eggs are healthy-- what else?

Healthy foods: You are well informed. I like the egg (1) without the yolk. Generally chicken/turkey breast and fin fish; salmon, tuna, swordfish, trout, tilapia. Incidentally canned fish is better than frozen fish sich in order to freeze the fish they wash much of the valuable unsaturated oils out also important are fresh vegetables. ...Read more
