In the quest for a healthier diet, incorporating resistant starch can be a game-changer. Not only does it promote better digestion and gut health, but it also helps regulate blood sugar levels and supports weight management.

Wondering how to up your resistant starch intake? Look no further. From pantry staples to surprising cooking methods, here are five simple strategies to effortlessly incorporate more resistant starch into your daily meals.

Ways to Increase Resistant Starch in Your Diet

Here are just a few ways to boost your intake:

  1. Include Legumes: Beans, lentils, and peas are excellent sources of resistant starch. Add them to soups, salads, or main dishes for a fiber and protein boost.
  2. Enjoy Green Bananas and Plantains: Green bananas and plantains are rich in resistant starch. Incorporate them into smoothies, salads, or cook them as a savory side dish.
  3. Cook, Cool, and Reheat: It may sound wild, but some starchy foods like potatoes, rice, and pasta form resistant starch when cooked and then cooled. Enjoy leftovers as cold salads or reheat them for a quick meal.
  4. Include Seeds: Incorporate seeds like chia seeds, flaxseeds, and hemp seeds into your meals and snacks. These seeds contain resistant starch and are packed with healthy fats, fiber, and protein.
  5. Enjoy Delicious Bread: We’re partial to this one. Hero Bread baked goods incorporate resistant wheat starch that helps boost your dietary fiber intake without sacrificing taste. As a bonus, you’ll also get more protein per serving than in top selling grocery brands.
