There are two types of fiber. Soluble fiber helps with the digestion process and lowers blood sugar and cholesterol. Insoluble fiber adds bulk and keeps the digested food moving through your intestines. You don’t have to stress about which foods you should eat for soluble or insoluble fiber. In my research, fiber rich foods usually have both types of fiber.
The good news is that there are a lot of high-fiber foods readily available. Different types of fruits, vegetables, beans and legumes, breads and grains, and nuts contain fiber. For fruit, bananas, oranges, apples mangoes, strawberries, and raspberries all have a notable amount of fiber. Vegetables providing a healthy dose of fiber are broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collard and turnip greens, and peas. There are also a variety of nuts that contain fiber. If you seek to get your fiber from bread and grains, be sure to look for whole grain products which will be clearly labeled as such like 100% whole wheat, flaxseed, or oat breads.
