One great way to stay satisfied between meals is to load up on high-fiber foods. One great way to naturally lose a few pounds of unwanted belly weight is to load up on high-fiber foods. 25-30 grams per day is the recommended daily serving amount. So for delicious and easy ways to get your fiber in (so you can get everything else out!) try these ten great snacks.

CHICKPEAS – Make your own crunchy, high fiber treat by draining and rinsing a can of chickpeas. Toss with 1 Tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper. Arrange them on a cookie sheet in a single layer and bake at 450 degrees for about 30 minutes (mixing around halfway through baking), or until crunchy. Each half-cup serving packs 6 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein.

POPCORN – Popcorn has about 7 g of dietary fiber per 4-cup serving. Try popping a handful of kernels in a small brown bag in the microwave by folding the top of the bag over twice, and laying it horizontally in the microwave. Cook until the popping begins to slow down but doesn’t stop completely. To jazz up the regular old movie stand-by, add fresh herbs like dill or parsley, or try a sweet variety with cinnamon, or nutmeg.
