Fiber is the micro-nutrient that helps move food and items/particles throughout your body. Fiber also helps keep you full and regulated. The NIH recommends men 31-38 grams of fiber a day and women 20-28 grams a day. The average adult in America gets 15 grams, so less then half what we’re supposed to be getting. Below are 3 foods I highly recommend adding at least one serving a day.
1. Black beans 15 grams per cup- so have 1 cup a day.
2. Kidney beans 46 grams in one cup. (you could do half a cup a day
3. Navy beans. 19 grams in one cup. (again one cup per day)
