Healthy eating does not entail avoiding fat, consuming fewer calories, or simply boiling your food. A well-balanced, nutritious diet must be adopted in order to develop healthy eating habits, which include eating everything in the proper quantities, at the proper times, and in the proper combinations. Taking a healthy fibrous diet is good for digestion. For our bowel motions to return to normal, we need fibers. Additionally, they aid in the prevention of several severe chronic illnesses including diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disorders.

If you aren't getting enough fiber each day, you may need to boost your intake. Dietary fibre includes carbohydrate that can't be digested by body enzymes. It is found in edible plant foods such as cereals, fruits, vegetables, dried peas, nuts, lentils, and grains. Fibre-rich fruits include bananas, oranges, apples, mangoes, strawberries, raspberries, while beans, legumes or darker coloured vegetables too have high-fibre content. Furthermore, whole grain breads or nuts like almonds, pistachios or pumpkin and sunflower seeds too have a high-fibre content in them.
