I often thought that fiber was one of those things that only the elderly talked about or were concerned with.  I couldn’t be more wrong; fiber is an essential component of any diet that keeps your body healthy and leaves you feeling more energized.

But, did you know that there are different kinds of fiber?  I didn’t either.  Turns out, there is soluble and insoluble fibers and they work together in your digestive system.  But these kinds of fiber are found in different kinds of food:

  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Berries
  • Apples
  • Zucchini
  • Chia Seeds
  • Flax
  • and more!

 

You can find soluble fiber in great, simple snacks like in popcorn!

Insoluble Fiber can be found in leafy greens like kale!
