A List Of 5 Simple High Fiber Foods To Eat For 25 Grams Of Fiber Daily

Dec 2, 2007
Do you know which foods are high enough in fiber to help you reach the recommended level of 25-35 grams of fiber every day? Here are 5 easy ways to remember which foods to eat for at least 25 grams of fiber in your daily diet.

1. "An apple a day keeps the doctor away". Fuji, Gala, Golden Delicious Pink Lady, Granny Smith and McIntosh apples each provide around 5 grams of fiber.

Apples are quite possibly, the easiest, high fiber foods to eat. There are many varieties to choose from, and in a few minutes you can quickly pick up 5 grams of fiber. No cooking or preparation required, except for a little rinsing. You can eat them on the go, in the car, at work, or even in bed. Of course we all have heard, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away". The choices are plenty, they're relatively inexpensive and apples provide a perfect source of nutritional fiber in a convenient, ready to eat package.

2. "Beans, beans, good for your heart..." Black beans provide as much as 7g of fiber per quarter cup of dry beans. A quarter cup of Pinto Beans ring up a hefty 12g of fiber per serving and Garbanzo Beans add 9g of fiber to your diet per 1/4 cup serving.

Yes, it's true, beans are good for your heart and they are really good food to eat for their high fiber content. Very few foods with as much nutrition are as versatile, economical and flavorful as beans. There are many ways to prepare beans or to order them while dining out. Soups often provide a good source of beans. You may even enjoy a few beans in a salad, or try the ever popular, rice and beans. Fast food chains sometimes have bean burritos, bean chili, or salads with beans on the menu.

3. "Breakfast is the most important meal". A bowl of shredded wheat, a piece of toast with multi grain bread, or an all bran muffin are wholesome high fiber food choices for breakfast. Each one can give you 3-5g of fiber or more and they are easy to prepare.

It may or may not be the most important meal, but breakfast is usually the first opportunity to start your day with plenty of fiber. Orange juice and apple juice go nicely with an all bran muffin for fiber first thing in the day.

4. "Shake it up and go". Get 5g of fiber in a cold, delicious chocolate or strawberry shake.

Now, it's easy to find, on the Internet, some high quality health drinks that provide excellent sources of soluble fiber. In fact, one high fiber protein drink even provides FOS, fructooligasacharides, a pro-biotic soluble fiber that is typically found in foods like onion, garlic, oats, and barley. High fiber health drinks make it easy to mix up a delicious shake with a few pieces of frozen banana or other fruit, for a cold, creamy, tasty way to start the day with 5g of fiber.

5. "High fiber food is good for your mood". When you eat plenty of fiber you feel better. Try a high fiber food bar for a quick snack any time of day and feel good about yourself without the guilt of snacking on junk food.

People eat candy bars, power bars, and all kinds of bars that offer little or no fiber. If you are going to eat a meal replacement bar or a healthy snack, then why not eat one with plenty of fiber? A high fiber food bar should give you at least 4g of fiber in a serving. If it doesn't, then it isn't worth the calories. You can find them on the Internet, but not in convenience stores. Look for "all natural high fiber food bars" to get the most nutrition and the most fiber for your dollar.
