High Fiber Foods That Are Delicious, Too



Senior Care in Ridgefield, CT

Senior-Care-in-Ridgefield-CTFiber - it’s an important part of a senior’s diet. It aids digestion, keeps you feeling full, keeps you regular, and it may reduce the risk of medical conditions such as high blood pressure and stroke. But, fiber doesn’t have to come from a powder dissolved in water which can be a chore to take each day. Instead of forcing down that fiber supplement, try adding these tasty, high-fiber foods to your diet.

Prior to making changes in your diet, you should check with your health care provider.

Blackberries and Raspberries

Adding these delectable berries to you diet can help you get some additional fiber into your diet. In addition to being healthy, blackberries and raspberries are sweet and easy to snack on throughout the day.

Avocados

Getting daily fiber doesn’t have to be boring when there are so many ways to serve this cool and creamy food. Blend up some homemade guacamole and serve it with some multigrain chips for a high-fiber, party-friendly snack. Or, get adventurous and try some avocado-based pasta sauce!

Oatmeal

There are so many good reasons to regularly enjoy a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. It can help lower cholesterol, it is naturally sugar free, and, of course, it is a great source of fiber. Top it with berries for fiber-packed power breakfast.

Whole Grains

If bread and pasta are a regular part of your diet, try swapping white varieties for whole grain versions. Whole grain breads and pasta have a different texture and taste which can be perfect for spicing up your usual meals. 

Black Beans

Black beans are high in fiber and protein, making them a great part of any healthy diet. Sprinkle them on a salad or mix with corn to make a delicious tex-mex salsa!

Broccoli

Green vegetables are an important part of any healthy diet. This green vegetable can help you get plenty of fiber. Eat broccoli raw with some veggie dip for a guilt-free snack or serve it steamed in sautés, stir-fries, or as a simple side dish.

Pears

A juicy pear is as sweet as candy and it is good for you, too. It’s a win-win. Eat them whole for a fiber-packed fruit snack!

While you certainly can get plenty of fiber from supplements, the food sources of fiber are much more fun and pleasant to eat. Incorporate these high-fiber foods into your usual recipes or try some new ones to keep things interesting!
