Fishing for Fiber

Sad but so, fish and shellfish aren't stellar when it comes to dietary fiber grams; there are zero to be found - but that doesn't discount the importance of this healthy food.

It is mined with healthy protein grams that can keep the most anxious dieter feeling full longer.

Our recommendation is to pair foods that are rich in such with your favorite species of fish or shellfish. Let's take a look at an example menu.

Diet Menu Featuring Fish, Foods Rich in Fiber

3 ounces of grilled salmon hit with salt, cracked black pepper, lemon pepper
1/2 cup of brown rice, steamed and served with low fat margarine: 1.7 grams (g)
1/2 cup of Brussels Sprouts, boiled: 3.4 g
1/2 Cucumber: 1/5 g
1 Small Ear of Corn: 2.9 g
1 Slice of Whole Grain Wheat Bread: 2 g
1 Cup of Blackberries: 7.2 g

Now we're up to almost 19 grams of dietary fiber. If you add a cup of raspberries at some point during your day, you will have reached the recommended amount for most individuals.

The caloric content of this menu equals less than 500 kcals. See? It's just not that difficult to get this element into your daily diet. And enjoying the natural food sources for any element rather than taking a supplement is always a healthier decision.
