You may be a bit worn out from the unending barrage of preaching about the health benefits of this mysterious substance called fiber, might you be more interested if you knew that eating fiber can help you lose weight?
Yes indeed, there are more practical benefits to be had by eating fiber than regularity, here are five foods that are rich in fibre that you must eat.
(1) Chia seeds
You may have heard of chia seeds only from those cheesy commercials that have been on TV for years featuring terracotta “pets” that use sprouted chia seeds as “fur.” Using chia seeds to decorate knickknacks clearly overlooks the health benefits that can be enjoyed by eating them.
This might be considered by some to be one of the most boring foods on the planet. Oatmeal is something that most of us have been familiar with as a breakfast staple since childhood, and it really is pretty bland-tasting unless you dress it up a bit with things like sugar, honey, raisins, berries, nuts or cinnamon.
This one probably takes a bit more work in order to make it palatable for some people since it’s pretty bland on its own.If you understand the benefits of eating it, however, you probably won’t mind taking a little time figuring out how to make it pleasing to your taste buds.
Eating spaghetti could help you lose weight. Even though it might be considered a carbohydrate, it’s one of the “good” ones, and fiber is what makes all the difference. As the heading suggests, not just any pasta will do. It must be whole grain in order to contain any beneficial amount of healthy fiber.
Broccoli is a word that may strike fear in the hearts of many people who recall the struggles they endured during childhood when their parents expected them to eat all of this rather uninspiring vegetable when it appeared on their dinner plate. Broccoli does not have to be boring, however. It can be worked into tasty salads, coleslaw, casseroles, and stir-fries.
