20 Foods High in Fiber

3. Flaxseeds.

There has been much in the media about what to eat to help keep you healthy and prevent future disease and flaxseed is a great option for your overall health. Flaxseed is highly regarded as being one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids that you could have from your diet and it also is high in vitamin B1, copper, and manganese. In addition, flaxseed is a perfect option for increasing your fiber intake, with two tablespoons of flaxseed (either ground into a powder or raw) offering about six grams, most of which is soluble. Sprinkle flaxseeds on your bagels, in your oatmeal, or blend it in your smoothie for this additional fiber kick.
