5 High-Fiber Snack Ideas

5 High-Fiber Snack Ideas

Fiber is one of the nutrients lacking most in the American diet. Studies estimate that less than 5% of Americans reach their daily fiber goals (25g/day for women, 38 g/day for men). Including fiber-rich snacks in your diet is a great way to support digestive health and maintain overall well-being. A high-fiber diet can lead to a lowering of blood sugar and weight loss. Here are five snacks that are high in fiber:

  1. Popcorn: Air-popped popcorn is a whole grain and a good source of dietary fiber. It's low in calories and can be a satisfying and crunchy snack.

  2. Chia Seed Pudding: Chia seeds are rich in fiber and can be used to make a delicious and nutritious pudding. Mix chia seeds with almond milk or yogurt, let it sit for a few hours or overnight, and top it with fruits or nuts for added flavor and texture.

  3. Nuts and Seeds: Almonds, walnuts, flaxseeds, and sunflower seeds are examples of nuts and seeds that are high in fiber. They also provide healthy fats, making them a nutritious and filling snack.

  4. Fruit with Nut Butter: Pairing fruits like apples, bananas, or celery with nut butter (such as almond or peanut butter) adds fiber and a combination of nutrients. The natural sweetness of the fruit and the protein from the nut butter make it a satisfying snack.

  5. Mighty Beans Roasted Bean Snacks: Beans are naturally very fibrous, and our snacks make them easy to munch on just like chips! We carry a variety of bean types in many delicious flavors, containing up to 5 grams of fiber per serving. Browse all of our flavors here.
