How much fiber should I have in my vegetarian diet?

Pick Fiber-Packed Vegetarian Meals

A healthy vegetarian diet is one that is packed with fiber. Fiber aids digestion and protects against disease. Fiber actually acts as sort of a broom by sweeping out the digestive system and assisting with bowel movements.

The recommended daily fiber intake is 20 to 30 grams. When selecting a vegetarian meal, try to choose one that is high in fiber. Look for food items that are fiber-rich like: beans (drained or fresh) and spinich, peas, carrots, cabbages, corn, potatoes, fruits (oranges, apples, and bananas), cereals (especially those rich in wheat, wholegrain and oats).
