Suddenly fiber is the good-health “it” ingredient, but our mothers and grandmothers have known about its benefits for years.
For our bodies to function properly, we need two types of fiber, soluble (dissolves in water) and insoluble (does NOT dissolve in water).
In my view, aside from lowering the risk of obesity, the main benefit of a diet rich in fiber is that it helps in lowering cholesterol.
Here are my favorite foods that are high in fiber, and ways you can enjoy eating them…
1. Whole Grains
Whole grains are one of the #best ways to get plenty of insoluble fiber.
You can find them in whole grain breads, pastas, and even in a lot of breakfast cereals.
