Healthy Food Tip
Can you please give me a list of foods that are high in soluble fiber?

As a group, beans and legumes are some of the most concentrated soluble fiber food sources. This would include dried peas, lentils, pinto beans, black beans, kidney beans, and others. Other notable sources of soluble fiber (that provide at least 1.5 grams per serving) include vegetables such as artichoke, carrots, Brussels sprouts, and jicama. Fresh fruits equally high in soluble fiber include blackberries, cherries, grapefruit, mango, orange, and pear. Among the grain foods, oats are also worthy of special mention here since they contain about 2 grams of soluble fiber per every half cup.
