Ever wonder if your dishes are high in certain nutrients? In this new series, we’ll tell you just that. Since most folks don’t get their daily fill of fiber, we thought that’d be a great place to start.

The Guidelines
The recommendations for fiber ranges from 20 to 38 grams per day—depending on age and gender. However, a good goal for anyone to aim for is 25 grams per day. Each of the recipes below contains at least 20 percent of your daily dose of fiber, which is 5 grams.

Fiber is an important part of your healthy eating plan for many reasons. It can help lower cholesterol and can help to reduce the risk of colon cancer, plus it makes you feel full for longer and can help maintain a healthy digestive system.
