A cleanse doesn’t have to be complicated; in fact, some of the best ways to cleanse your body are the most simple and effective. For example, if you use high fiber foods for cleansing, you can obtain great results while keeping it real and whole.
So let’s focus on that. What are some high fiber foods that you can use to clean out your bowels? Here are 10:
- Cauliflower: This is one of the best when it comes to high fiber foods for cleansing. Cauliflower is teeming with fiber, and can be used in so many delicious ways. (Cauliflower steaks, smashed cauliflower instead of potatoes, etc.)
- Beans: Unanimously known for being fiber powerhouses, beans and legumes are chalk full of incredible, useful fiber (especially chickpeas).
- Artichokes: So full of fiber that your plumber will tell you to never garborate artichoke pieces (they get very stuck—and this is from personal experience!), a medium-sized artichoke provides over 10 grams of fiber! That’s amazing.
- Apples: 1 apple (with skin) contains almost 5 grams of fiber. We guess experts weren’t kidding when they told us that an apple a day keeps the doctor away!
- Quinoa: Technically a seed, this superfood is labelled as such for a reason. Providing more fiber than other “grains,” this versatile food (uncooked) contains about 17-27 grams of fiber per one cup! Once cooked, it contains only about 5 grams of fiber per cup, due to the water it absorbs. But there are tons of great recipes out there for raw quinoa, so keep your eyes peeled! (Hint: roll raw quinoa, peanut butter and oats into balls, refrigerate overnight, and eat the next day.)
- Sprouted Whole Grains: The secret here is to keep the grains sprouted and whole. During processing, most (if not all) of the fiber is removed, so by keeping grains as pure and unprocessed as possible, you reap the most rewards.
- Watermelon: This tasty summer snack contains huge amounts of the ultimate cleanse team: water and fiber. Don’t let the sweetness fool you—watermelon is no joke. It’s amazing for your body, and a great addition to any cleanse.
- Berries: More than an antioxidant powerhouse, The Mayo Clinic published that just 1 cup of mixed berries contains around 8 grams of fiber. That’s easy fiber for great cleansing!
- Dried Fruit: About ¼ cup of raisins or figs have about 2 grams of fiber. However, you don’t want to make this snack your regular fibre source—dried fruit is very high in sugar. (Naturally-occurring sugar, but sugar nonetheless.)
- NutraCleanse™: Yep—our product is made of primarily flax seed, which is the ultimate fiber superhero. In addition to flax, NutraCleanse™ also contains psyllium husk, which is also a great cleanse ingredient.
