8 High Fiber Foods You Should Eat More
Fiber is so important in our diet. Not only does it aid in digestion, regulate blood sugar and appetite, and reduce inflammation, but it may reduce risk of colon cancer while also ridding the body of excess hormones and cholesterol. The more fiber you can get into your diet, the better! It’s also very important if you are prioritizing your protein intake to ensure things are moving through your digestive tract. A great goal is to get 25-35 grams of fiber per day.
Here are my top 8 foods to eat regularly to help you ensure you’re getting adequate fiber in every day. And I’m linking 5 of my favorite recipes for each cateogry!
