Fiber Filled Foods for Optimal Digestive Health

There are a million commercials about it, your doctor probably advises it, and the grocery aisles are full of tablets and powder filled with it. Fiber: it definitely does a body good. Taking in the proper amount of fiber can help your body in its digestion. This means that toxins and waste can leave the body more easily, and your body feels the positive effects. In order to get enough fiber, for most people, you don’t have to resort to the pills and powders. Instead, you can tweak your diet to include some delicious fiber filled foods. For those looking to add some fiber to their diet, check out these digestive friendly fibrous foods.

Avocado

This delicious fruit contains a large amount of fiber for its small size. Adding a few avocados a week can help keep your digestion moving and those toxins cleaned out. As a bonus, avocados are also a great source of healthy fats, which your body needs to function and which can lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

Whole Wheat

Whether it’s whole wheat bread, or whole wheat rice, or some other whole wheat option, this type of food is great for adding fiber to your menu. This is especially good for you when you are able to replace some of your white foods (white bread, white rice, etc) with its whole wheat counterpart. You’ll be gaining the benefits of wheat and losing the negatives of white all in one swoop.

Pears

A lot of fruit is fibrous and good for the body, but pears are especially fibrous. The amount of fiber in a pear will have your digestive tract moving in no time. It also helps that this delicious fruit is full of water, so you’re getting a double whammy by adding this to your regular menu.

Oatmeal

Eating oatmeal for breakfast starts you out on the right foot. It has a good amount of fiber, and it is also thought to help lower and control cholesterol levels. If you choose to add this food to your diet, make sure you stick to the real kind, and stay away from the sugary flavored instant oatmeal.

Adding fiber to your diet is definitely worth it. It brings an array of healthy benefits, and thanks to a few delicious foods, it’s easier than ever. Try adding just a few of these foods to reap the benefits of a fiber filled diet and a healthy menu and lifestyle.
