Three Of Some Of The Most High Fiber Foods
The United States Department of Agriculture lists kidney beans as a good source of fibre, protein, and iron. There are 11 g of fibre, 13.4 g of protein, and 3 mcg of iron in just one cup of canned kidney beans.
The National Kidney Foundation reports that the potassium and magnesium found in beans are beneficial to heart health and blood pressure regulation.
These legumes, which are also known as chickpeas, come in two different colours: the lighter “Kabuli” type is more common in the United States, while the darker “Desi” type is more common in India and the Middle East. According to the USDA, a single cup of boiled chickpeas contains 12.5 grammes of fibre and 14.5 grammes of protein.
The USDA reports that one avocado contains 13.5 grammes of fibre, making it an excellent source of this nutrient. The American Heart Association notes that avocados are a great source of monounsaturated fats, the “good” kind of fat that can aid in reducing cholesterol and the risk of developing heart disease. Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat (19.7 g per serving).
