Most of us don’t have enough fiber each day. The average fiber intake of Americans is about 15 grams per day, while the recommended amount is 25 to 30 grams per day. For our digestive health, we really need to learn what foods are rich in fiber and add them to our diets deliberately. Below are 20 high fiber foods with amount of fiber and DV (daily value) stated. The unit for most of them is “CUP” but you don’t really have to eat a cup of them as it can be too much especially for fruits, as the sugar in fruits can have negative health impacts on your body! And for DV (daily value), higher percentages mean higher amount of fiber, so that you have an idea which is comparatively richer in fiber than the others.
One thing you need to take note is that some of the foods below like beans can cause bloating. The tip is to observe how your body reacts after adding that into your diet and make some tunings accordingly when necessary.
