Sources of Fiber

Fiber is thought to fill a person up thus regulating appetite.

I’ve Googled sources of fiber and amounts. Buy a 2-cup measuring cup and you can measure the amount of food you’re cooking or using.

Lentils:

15.6 gm per cup cooked

Black beans:

15 gm per cup cooked

Peas:

8.8 gm per cup cooked

Broccoli:

5.1 gm per cup boiled

Brussels sprouts:

4.1 gm per cup boiled

Pear:

5.5 gm per medium fruit raw

Raspberries:

8 gm per cup raw

Blackberries:

7.6 gm per cup raw

Avocados:

6.7 gm per half raw

Whole-wheat pasta:

6.3 gm per cup cooked

Taken from Greatist website.

The Greatist website appears to be legitimate. It evens features kettle bell exercises you can do and body weight exercises you can do.

I’ll be back next week with sources of protein.
