15 Fiber-Packed Foods

By , Barbara Brody, Woman's Day
You've heard that fiber is important for just about everything, from keeping your heart healthy to promoting good digestion and even helping you lose weight. But are you getting the recommended 25 grams a day? "Most Americans are only getting half of the amount they should," says nutritionist Lyssie Lakatos, RD, cofounder of The Nutrition Twins. Fortunately, snacking on these nutritionist-approved treats can help. 
Good to Go

Delicious thinkThin Bars have 4 grams of fiber and are easy to eat on the run (no crumbs!), says Deborah Herlax Enos, CN, a certified nutritionist and wellness coach and author of Weight a Minute! Transform Your Health in 60 Seconds a Day. They're also high in non-GMO protein (meaning it hasn't been genetically modified). 

Fast Flax

Sprinkle some ground flaxseed onto yogurt or even a half-cup of ice cream. Each teaspoon you add has 2 grams of fiber, says Enos, who's a fan of the Premium Gold brand. Visit PremiumGold.com for more information.

The Perfect Pear

Nothing is easier than grabbing a piece of whole fruit, and antioxidant-rich pears contain more than most others (4 grams), says Enos. For a more substantial snack, pair your pear with a dab of almond butter.

I am eating raisins, and applesauce, for a snack, right now. I am also taking on the awful chore of trying to quit smoking, so my appetite is humongous, and eating these 2 things help me some. I'm still going to add more things as I see them. I also eat lots of Wheaties, Raisin Bran, and Bran Flakes. Report

I don't eat beans or wheat, so I take "Konsyl" Psyllium Husk that I buy at Walmart for about $14 & it last a month. It gives me all the fiber I need. Report
