Tips and Tricks for Increasing Fiber Intake

If you've been around for a while you know I love talking about fiber. Here are just a few ways you can increase your fiber intake for a happy and healthy gut!


Swap refined grains for whole-grain options

~A good swap is trading white rice for brown rice or white flour for whole wheat

Opt for a smoothie made with whole fruits/veggies rather than a juice

~Whole fruits have fiber that is removed in the juicing process

Choose high fiber snacks

~Good options include nuts, fruits, and cut veggies

Try a new legume

~Use black beans to make veggie burger patties or roast chickpeas to sprinkle on salads

Use a fiber supplement

~Check out the nutrition essentials section of my gut health page for my favorite fiber-rich supplement options


When you're increasing your fiber intake be sure to do so slowly and drink plenty of fluids!
