High Fiber Meal Planning
High fiber foods naturally lower your cholesterol, and your heart disease risk.
  • Choose fresh or dried fruit more often then canned fruit or juice. Try berries, apples, oranges, and prunes.
  • Choose fresh vegetables instead of canned vegetables or vegetable juice. Eat them with the skin on.
  • Choose whole wheat breads, rolls, crackers, or pitas. They should have whole wheat flour, stone ground whole wheat, or cracked wheat as the first ingredient.
  • Choose bran, shredded wheat, or multi-grain cereals more often than other cold cereals.
  • Choose oatmeal instead of other hot cereals.
  • Choose brown rice or wild rice instead of white rice. Choose whole wheat pasta more often than regular pasta.
  • Add ground flaxseed to your diet. http://flaxcouncil.ca/
  • Eat white or sweet potatoes with the skin on.  
  • Eat more beans such as black beans, black-eyed peas, kidney beans, navy beans, and red beans.
To help your body digest the fiber, increase your fiber intake slowly over a period of 6-8 weeks and drink 6-8 8oz. glasses of water each day.
