The National Academy of Medicine says you should aim to consume 14 grams of fiber for every 1-thousand calories.
Here are some high-fiber foods that should help you reach that goal.
Beans and Legumes. Swap out that ground beef in your tacos for black beans, Use lentils instead of meat in your Bolognese, or replace chicken on your salad.
Nuts and seeds. Not only are they a good source of fiber but they’re also packed with other vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. Medical professionals also say grabbing a handful of nuts rather than a handful of salt-covered potato chips, will keep you satisfied just as much as the sodium-laden snack.
Let’s not forget berries, besides being full of Vitamin C, they’re ideal as a post-workout food. Try mashed berries and nut butter on whole-grain bread.
Other foods You can use to increase your fiber intake include pears, whole grains, avocados, and bananas.
