Fiber helps keep you full and supports a healthy gut microbiome, making it a weight-loss secret weapon. To add more fiber to your diet, it’s a good idea to prioritize whole grains, fruits and veggies. One way to do that is with hearty whole grain oats for breakfast — they’re high in fiber, low on the glycemic index, budget-friendly and easily customizable with your favorite toppings. Overnight oats are also an excellent choice for busy mornings since you can prep a few jars ahead of time so breakfast is ready when you are.
To make sure you’re eating enough fiber (it’s recommended women and men consume 28 and 38 grams of fiber per day, respectively), you can track your intake with an app like MyFitnessPal. Then start your day with these delicious overnight oats recipes featuring up to 12 grams of fiber per serving.
