Fiber intake is an ongoing subject among many of us. We don’t eat enough, we eat too much, it constipates us and it makes us go. It’s hard to get the facts straight when it comes to fiber. The bottom line: fiber is essential, and knowing which foods provide high amounts of fiber can lead to overall good health.

First off, in case you didn’t know, fiber is the roughage found in plant-based foods. Our bodies cannot break down fiber, which may have you wondering why it’s so good for us. Remarkably, its indigestible qualities are exactly what make it healthy.

When fiber is consumed it is not digested, so when it passes through our system it allows bowel movements to easily be released, flushing out hazards like bad cholesterol.
