Fiber is essential to our wellbeing. We all love to hate on it, but they're really good for you. Having the right amount of fiber in your diet helps lower cholesterol, promotes healthier weights, prevents constipation, and diverticulosis. Not to mention that it keeps your blood sugar levels within a healthy range. 

Women should shoot for 25 grams of fiber per day and men should shoot for 38 grams. Basically, 14 grams for every 1,000 calories.

Kale chips

Grams of fiber per cup: 3

We’ll be honest. These guys don’t taste like potato chips. But if you’re looking for a healthier way to crunch, kale chips are the way to go.

Rinse and dry a large bunch of kale, then remove the stems and tough center ribs. Rip the kale into large pieces, toss with a little olive oil, then sprinkle with some salt and pepper.

Arrange the kale in a single layer on a large parchment-lined baking sheet (careful not to overlap). Bake at 375°F (190°C) until crisp, which takes about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them, checking frequently. They can burn easily.
