10 Tasty Ways to Eat More Fiber

Although whole wheat pasta and brown rice are great sources of fiber, they are, frankly, an acquired taste. If you don’t enjoy them, here are some great options for you to get your daily quota of fiber, which plays a key role in maintaining good digestion, and protecting you from a wide range of disease.

  • Ditch white bread, and switch to whole wheat instead. It retains its nutrients and bestows you with essential fiber. Besides, it is tastier!
  • Do you like lentils? Rejoice! Lentils are a terrific source of fiber, and even if you season them with just salt, pepper and a twist of lime, they’re delicious.
  • Eat your apples and pears with the peels on, because the skin is where a lot of the fiber is.
  • Sprinkle berries and raisins on your cereal and/or toast. They add much flavor and fiber.
  • Potatoes baked or boiled in their jackets are a superb source of fiber, and I don’t know anyone who does not love them!
  • Avocados are amazing: they not only give you fiber, but also lower bad cholesterol. The soft, creamy flesh of the avocado yields lots of beneficial fiber!
  • Beans are a good source of fiber, flavonoids, and many other vital nutrients. If you find them too heavy, introduce them slowly into your diet, until your digestive system can process them comfortably.
  • Chickpeas are an excellent fiber-rich food. Enjoy them in falafel, hummus, and salads. I recently tried a delicious chickpea and spinach soup accented with garlic. Here is a recipe for you to try.
  • Enjoy a handful of almonds daily. Their health benefits are quite staggering, they taste wonderful, and of course, give you ample fiber.
  • Blueberries and oatmeal are not only a palate-pleasing combo, but excellent for your digestion, because they both contain fiber.

Sweet potatoes are another great source of fiber. And you don't even have to eat the skin, there is fiber in the potato.

I do most of what you list here already--- I had to laugh about the lentils. I eat them plain and just love them, but will try the twist of lemon with salt and pepper. thank you.
