There are so many foods that are naturally high in fiber. I am actually trying to eat in a more healthy way and that includes eating more high fiber foods. Here is a site that I found that lists the benefits of fiber and how many grams can be found in the foods that they have listed. http://www.gicare.com/pated/edtgs01.htm

There are a variety of different foods that have a lot of fiber. In-case you are wanting to increase your fiber within your diet.. JUst be careful doing this. As I have heard that a sudden increase in one's fiber intake.. Can sometimes help one to experience bloating, diarrhea, etc.. It's best (I've learned from experience on this one) to add fiber to one's diet gradually. Then additional fiber in one's diet can then be increased slowly once a person is consuming the right amount. Some foods that I know have high fiber are as follows: - Whole wheat or whole grain bread - Bran muffins - Bean based foods - Brown rice - Oatmeal - whole wheat tortillas (I know when.. I am wanting to make a taco or even a burrito that.. I will load up on pinto beans or even kidney beans in general.. And then I will add fresh lettuce, tomatoes & of course salsa.. It's a great nutritious lunch.. I just thought I'd give you an example of what I use whole wheat tortilla's for..) - Pears - Raisins - Bran flakes - Potatoes (with the skin baked on though) - Corn - Carrots I know that I eat frosted mini wheat's quite often.. They are a great source of fiber I have found.. I strongly recommend this cereal if you are wanting to increase your fiber in take. I hope I have been able to give you a few idea's of some foods that are naturally high in fiber. Thanks for allowing me to share! xx

Dried beans are very high in fiber. They can be used in a variety of dishes, from soups to casseroles.
