All About Fiber

Fiber is a category of carbohydrates that the human body cannot digest. When most carbohydrates are consumed, the body breaks down the complex carb into glucose; however, because fiber is unable to be turned into glucose, it passes through the body via the digestive tract. Fiber helps regulate hunger and blood sugar

Soluble Fiber 

Fiber comes in many forms, one type is soluble fiber. Soluble fiber is dissolvable in water and can aid in lowering blood glucose levels and cholesterol. Popular soluble foods include oatmeal, chia seeds, nuts, beans, lentils, blueberries, and apples. 

Insoluble Fiber 

On the other hand, there is a form of fiber that is insoluble or unable to be dissolved in water. This form of fiber helps other foods move through your digestive system and promote regularity and prevent constipation. Insoluble fibers include grains such as wheat, quinoa, brown rice, legumes, leafy greens, kale, almonds, walnuts, seeds, and pears. 

How to Add More Fiber to Your Diet 

Fiber is beneficial for you so making a conscious effort to increase consumption is something to consider. Easy ways to add more fiber to your diet include eating whole fruits instead of drinking fruit juice or fruit snacks and replacing starchy white carbs with diverse minimally processed grains such as brown rice, quinoa, and farro. High-fiber cereals, raw nuts instead of chips at snack time, and psyllium capsules are all great too!
