9. Oats

No matter what type of oatmeal or how you prepare it, oatmeal is a good source of fiber. Oats contain a powerful soluble fiber known as beta-glucan, which has major beneficial effects on blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

Apart from improving digestive health, a few almonds a day can help promote heart health, prevent weight gain and fight diseases like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

Just 1 ounce (23 nuts) of almonds provides 3.5 grams of fiber.

You can have dry roasted almonds as snacks and add them to cereals, baked goods, yogurt and salads. As almonds are also high in calories, you must not consume them in excess.
