Fiber-Rich Foods You Should Be Eating


Irritable bowel syndrome, a common disorder that impacts the large intestine, is prevalent in nearly 10 to 25 percent of the U.S. population, according to Health Union. This condition causes digestive issues, such as abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea and constipation. Those living with IBS can relieve such symptoms and manage the disorder by making smarter lifestyle choices, such as mitigating stress and following a proper diet. Consuming more fiber is one of the easiest ways to regulate digestion and normalize bowel movements.

Those who are currently living with digestive issues, or wish to achieve a healthier weight, lower cholesterol levels or control blood sugar levels, can consider adding more high-fiber foods to their everyday diet. According to the Mayo Clinic, women should eat at least 21 to 25 grams of fiber every day, while men should consume at least 30 to 38 grams per day. Here are some of the best fiber-rich foods to add to your daily diet:

1. Fruits
Raspberries, pears, apples, bananas, oranges, figs and raisins make excellent sources of fiber when eaten raw. Eat these options as snacks, or add them to your breakfast.

2. Vegetables
As a high priority in any plant-based diet, most of your fiber will likely come from the vegetables you consume. Options like artichokes, broccoli, turnip greens, Brussels sprouts and carrots are versatile, high in fiber and loaded with flavor.

3. Whole grains
Whole-wheat barley, bran flakes, organic oatmeal and whole-wheat bread are a few of the fiber-rich options you can consume on a plant-based diet.

4. Legumes, nuts and seeds
Lentils, black beans, lima beans, almonds, pistachios and pecans are high in fiber. Add beans to your lunches and dinners, and consume nuts as a snack or for dessert.

    The fresh fruit and berries are a great source of the fiber we need. I love fresh figs at breakfast or just as a shack during the day. As Annette stated it is better tasting to take your fiber by fresh fruits and vegetables however..thanks goodness there is Fiber Cleanse if we need a little help.

    I can eat vegan, with lots of salads and still be somewhat constipated. THE MAGIC BULLET for me is medjool dates. Eating several dates a day is the ticket for keeping me cleansed and regular. I always stock dates. And, wow, are they delicious. I usually eat one or two alongside some nut butter or tear one up and put it in a small bowl of berries. Life-changers! Yes, they do have natural sugar, but I am careful in other areas so do not feel the sugar in the dates is a problem at all.

  9. Great information I myself suffer from constipation.
