Moong dhal is particularly high in dietary fiber, providing almost 15.5 grams of fiber per 1-cup serving. This provides between 40.5 and 71percent of the dietary reference intake for fiber per day for adult men and women. Dietary fiber can help reduce blood cholesterol levels as well as prevent dietary complications, such as constipation and diverticulosis. A diet high in dietary fiber will also reduce the risk of overeating, as you feel fuller with less food. image Sweet Potato Hash browns This recipe of hash is both sweet and savory , delicious and so easy to prepare that you won’t believe it .
