Maybe your doctor has suggested that you increase your fiber intake, or maybe you’ve heard about the health benefits of high fiber diets and you want to give it a try. Here are some simple steps that will help you get more fiber easier
Put some of the foods that consume you with high fiber versions. Most of us have cereal in the morning, and there is no need to change the routine. Just buy a high fiber cereal instead of regular cereal. There are many options sprouting up on grocery shelves, and you can probably find one you like as much or better than cereal now.
Eat more fruits and vegetables. Okay, so this is nothing new, they have told you this whole life. But fruits and vegetables do not have to be boring. For example, as a snack, I love to munch on frozen blueberries. It’s a perfect summer snack with lots of fiber and no added sugar.
Eat more vegetable soups. Classic minestrone soup is full of beans and vegetables, it provides a good amount of fiber, and it also tastes good.
Eat more beans. Black, pinto, gorganzo, refried, all do. Serve them as a side dish or a main course, or sprinkle them on a salad for an exotic touch.
Tips and Warnings
You should get about 30 grams of fiber day.
Ease into a high fiber diet by trying one thing at a time and slowly add more.
