You’re probably familiar with the many benefits of fiber – how great it is for digestion, how full it makes us feel, and the positive effects it can have on blood sugar and cholesterol. So we wanted to pass along an interesting roundup
we recently found on several fiber-rich foods that just might surprise you.
Did you know that nuts are a great source of fiber? Just a quarter-cup of almonds has 4 grams of fiber. Onions, too, are a good source of inulin, a water-soluble fiber that is known to help lower cholesterol and to promote digestive health. And it turns out that kiwis – that sweet and tangy fruit – have about 2 grams of fiber each, which makes them a nicely portable way to add a little fiber to your day.
These, with some of the fiber staples we know and love, like whole grains and green, leafy veggies, should get you well on your way to the 25-40 grams of fiber a day recommended for most adults.
