Swap traditional pasta for higherfiber versions for example a dish of traditional angel hair pasta has only three grammes of fibre while the same shape produced from red lentils has twice that amount

Choose crunchy and fun wholegrain snacks many common snacks already have a lot of fibre so finding a satisfying afternoon snack wont be difficult

Skip juices and make smoothies instead however because smoothies consume almost all of the fruit—you usually just toss it into the blender—they retain fibre
