There are all sorts of ways to sneak fiber into your diet without sacrificing the joy of a delicious meal.
How To Sneak High Fiber into Your Diet: When you think of fiber, you can imagine the tasteless salad breathing into the nose or catching the nose while the Metamucil and the Gooey Chia seeds are cleared.
The pictures are not exactly appealing.
But fiber is an essential part of any healthy diet, which stimulates the digestive system and increases nutrient absorption and waste disposal.
Fortunately, there are all sorts of ways to sneak fiber into your diet without sacrificing the joy of a delicious meal. Continue reading to learn how.
Try a smoothie
If you have a sweet tooth, a breakfast or snack time smoothie is a great way to add fiber to your diet, while increasing your antioxidant intake. Save yourself the calories by replacing yoghurt with almond milk.
If you’re feeling adventurous, throw a few greens. You may not be able to taste vegetables, but you will get the dark leaf-green nutrients your body needs.
Cook your veggies
Eating cold, raw salad is not the only way to add vegetables to your diet. Foods around the world are incorporating fiber into their daily intake using cooked vegetables.
Steam or stir-fry your vegetables, add flavored flavors like cracked pepper and smoked sea salt, or hot sauce and peanut oil.
Switching from fiber-free snacks to fiber rich ones will open the door for the entire world of flavour. You can see that your new choices are better than old ones.
Do you like the crunch and saltyness of potato chips? Try sponge chips or kale chips instead.
These fiber-rich snacks are processed just like your beloved potato chips, but they are packed with the nutrients you need and are often just a fraction of the calories.
Additionally, because they are dry, they do not have the “green vegetable” taste that many people prefer.
Getting fiber doesn’t have to be a chore. The key is to find ways to fit fiber into the foods and tastes you already want.
