Mango: In addition to fiber, the tasty fruit contains antioxidants and vitamins A and C, along with enzymes that can help with digestion.  We love fresh mango fresh on yogurt or even just as a snack.

Roasted chickpeas: These legumes, also known as garbanzo beans, will provide you a good amount of fiber per serving, and are a good source of protein, and also have a low glycemic index. These are great in salads and we love hummus as a tasty snack or spread.

Pomegranate seeds: In addition to fiber, these tart treats also have anti-inflammatory properties and are rich in vitamin A and potassium. These also pair well with yogurt or in a salad.
