Even if you hated Brussels sprouts as a child, there’s no longer any excuse to avoid them now that there are so many delicious ways to prepare them. In particular, that is so because the USDA reports that half a cup of these boiled vegetables contains two grammes of protein. There is also two grammes of fibre in each serving. Try them charred and topped with a pancetta and fig glaze, or roast them with crispy capers and carrots.
Seeds of the Chia Plant
These tiny seeds are loaded with fibre in addition to the calcium, protein, phosphorous, and a plethora of other vitamins and minerals. The USDA reports that a single ounce of chia seeds contains nearly 10 grammes of fibre. They are also very convenient to include in your regular diet. Whether you’re eating oatmeal, a smoothie, or a salad, chia seeds are a healthy addition. You can also use them as an egg substitute in baking or mix them with nut milk to make a nutritious pudding.
Why is it that guava is so wonderful? According to the United States Department of Agriculture, not only does this juicy tropical fruit provide about three grammes of fibre, but it also contains a large amount of vitamin C. About 125 milligrammes of vitamin C can be found in a single guava.
