What Breakfast with 10 Grams of Fiber Looks Like

In This Article

Fiber, a type of naturally-occurring carbohydrate found in plant-based foods, helps keep you feeling full, controls cholesterol levels and protects against certain types of cancer. Fiber also helps improve digestive wellness and promotes regularity. Certain types (like chicory root fiber) act as prebiotics, which help increase the amount of good bacteria in the gut. Keeping these microbes happy has been shown to help with weight loss and contribute to overall health.

If you’re looking to boost your fiber intake, aim for 10 grams of fiber at breakfast, which keeps you full and puts a nice dent in your total intake needs for the day. (The recommended daily intake of fiber is 25 grams for women and 35 grams for men.) Good sources of fiber include whole grains, veggies, nuts, seeds, beans and berries.

Try these five recipes below for breakfast inspiration and plan to follow up with these high-fiber lunch ideas.
