What are some good fiber foods?

Some of the best foods for getting natural fiber into your daily diet are: 1) Banana's, 2) Apples, 3) Almonds, 4) Blackberries, 5) Raspberries, 6) whole wheat spaghetti 7) baked beans, 8) black beans. Of course, there are dozens of other choices. And many fruits and veggies that offer more fiber per serving.

However, these just happen to be some of my own personal favorites. Of course, fruit is expensive these days. Which for me just means: eat the good stuff and stop paying for the bad stuff (worthless, empty-calorie snacks, and such).

1. In a Harvard study conducted on 40,000 male health professionals, researchers discovered that a high intake of dietary fiber reduced the risk of coronary heart disease by 40 percent compared to a low fiber intake.

2. Fiber has many health benefits, from regulating blood sugar and filling you up, to protecting against diabetes and digestive issues

3. Legumes, seeds and nuts are foods to look for containing both protein and fiber
