High Fiber recipes
Last Updated : Jan 18,2018
Dietary Fiber is the roughage or the indigestible part of the plant. In simple terms, the thread-like substance seen in fruits and vegetables is the fiber. It is also found in high quantity just beneath the skin of fruits and vegetables.
The US recommended daily allowance (RDA) for Women (18 to 50) is 25 grams and 21 grams (51 years plus). US RDA for Men is 30 to 38 grams. The thumb rule is that for every 1,000 calories consumed you need 14 grams of fibre.
We mark a recipe as High Fibre or Rich in Fibre if the following holds true. Most healthy salads automatically go to HIGH fibre as they have fish fruits and vegetables. Indian Roti is good if each roti has between 1 and 1.5 grams per serving of fibre. Pulses such as moong, matki and oats, quinoa and make the cut also. Barley makes the cut also as its a whole grain but you need to consume quite a bit of it.
Dietary fibre has many health benefits. It can reduce your risk of heart disease, prevent the onset of diabetes or control hike in blood sugar levels and tackle some types of cancers, and also help weight control. Fiber is also important for digestive health - insoluble fiber add bulk to the stools and makes waste move through the digestive tract more quickly, which is better for the gut and can help to prevent constipation.
Whole grains, fruits, vegetables, sprouts, beans and a few seeds like flax seeds are good sources of fiber. Using these we have created a vast range of recipe like Bajra Khichdi, Cabbage Carrot and Lettuce Salad, Chat-pati Sprouts Frankie, Chawli Masoor Dal and Clear Soup with Mixed Vegetables are few recipes of this section. But this section is certainly more vast than just the recipe names listed here. There are more categories here – Fiber rich recipes for constipation, pregnancy, diabetes, weight loss and so on. So take some time and explore it in detail to benefit persistently. For a detailed list of 22 High Fibre Foods see Fibre Rich Foods
