Three Fiber Packed Foods You Must Have
According to Harvard Health, almonds, along with virtually every other edible nut or seed you can think of (pistachios or pumpkin seeds, anyone? ), are excellent sources of fibre and healthy fats, protein, potassium, and magnesium.
However, a serving of this deliciousness can easily exceed your daily calorie limit due to its high fat content. As reported by the United States Department of Agriculture, one cup of whole almonds contains nearly 18 grammes of fibre.
Barley is a whole grain that is commonly used in brewing beer and whisky. It is a good source of fibre, vitamins, minerals, and the heart-healthy beta glucan that can reduce choelsterol, as reported by Harvard Health.
The USDA reports that one cup of hulled (not overly processed) barley contains 31.8 grammes of fibre. Barley is a versatile grain that can be used in place of rice in soups and salads.
Soups and stews in Indian cuisine often include this protein-rich pulse (the collective term for beans and peas). But one thing is certain: split peas are a fibre powerhouse, whether you choose to whip them into a hearty soup or add them to a grain bowl. According to the USDA, there are 16.3 grammes of fibre in just one cup after it has been cooked.
