Here’s a way to up your fiber intake. Be sure to increase fiber slowly and be sure to increase your fluid intake at the same time.
- Eat beans–in your salad, in soup, as a side dish, in a wrap, with scrambled eggs, in a burrito, or pureed into a dip. They are little powerhouses, with about 8 grams of protein per ½ cup and 8 grams of fiber. Think black beans, chickpeas, pinto beans, navy beans, kidney beans, and white beans.
