What Foods Are High in Fiber

Some time ago I wrote a list of low carb foods for people on low carb diets. Now I am going to give you a list of foods that are high in fiber. You need between 30 and 40 grams of fiber everyday to maintain the best health. Most Americans only get 8-15 grams of fiber a day, not nearly enough. So eat more of the following foods…

Foods High in Fiber

1. Fruit and Vegetables

  • Apples (keep the skin on)
  • Apricots (dried are better)
  • Blueberries
  • Figs
  • Pears

  • Strawberries (most berries are good)
  • Grapefruit
  • Plums
  • Pears
  • Avocados
  • Cooked broccoli
  • Cook beet

  • Cooked carrots
  • Bok choy
  • Chick peas
  • Celery
  • Cooked onion

2. Cereals and Grains
