Love fresh figs rather than dried, but am wondering about whether to avoid them as they are so seedy. My personal jury is still out on that one. I may buy a couple next week and see if I get a reaction. I will really miss them if I have to give them up. :-)
E - Edemame 1/2 cup = 9g fibre!
Not the biggest fan of soy beans myself, but these might be worth a try. :-) I'm guessing that the pods contain insoluble fibre.
Funnily enough, apple and banana are the only two fruit I eat on a regular basis. I love apple on porage and banana on other cereal like rice krispies. I also eat banana mashed onto a slice of wholemeal bread/toast for a fibre boosting snack. :-)
Now, what shall I choose for C...
How about the good old Carrot. It is one of only three main vegetables (the others being broccoli and brussels sprouts) that are apparently high in soluble fibre - 1.1g soluble fibre and 1.5g insoluble fibre for a 2.6g fibre total. :-)
This may help some of us discover new goodies to try in our efforts to improve our high-fibre food intake.
Starting at A and working through the alphabet, we take turns listing food and drinks that have a good fibre content. By good fibre, I mean ANY food that has fibre in it, types of bread, fruits and veggies etc.
I will do A. The next person replies with a suggestion for the letter B, etc. If you can include some info for the fibre content of your suggestion, that is great, but the name of the food is enough if you don't know.
