We love a lower carbohydrate diet at Eleven Eleven Wellness Center – low carb equals low sugar and low sugar is very important for overall health. With some patients we even experiment with a completely grain free diet! One of the most often asked questions when we put someone on a grain free diet (after “What am I going to eat for breakfast?”) is “Where will my fiber come from? Should I take a supplement?” 

Fiber is actually found in many plant foods, not just grains, and you can easily get enough through eating a variety of whole foods every day, even if you are on a lower carbohydrate plan. You will find fiber in fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, and beans. 

Foods with Fiber: 

  • Raspberries
  • Collard Greens
  • Coconut
  • Pistachios
  • Onions
  • Avocado
  • Lentils 
  • Artichoke
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Black beans
  • Kale
  • Split peas
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Tomatoes
  • Olives
  • Flaxseeds

You can see from this list that it’s easy to eat foods every day that contribute to your fiber intake… and this list is just a small sample. Want all the details on foods with fiber? Check out The World’s Healthiest Foods.
