Better Than Bran: Pick Pears for Fiber

Anyone who has ever been advised by their Doctor to add more fiber to their diet has no doubt found themselves aimlessly wondering the cereal isles trying to figure out which one is better for them. It is easier, and tastier to add fiber to your diet by staying out of the cereal isle and heading to the fresh fruit section to pick up some pears.

And if you don't LIKE pears? What is a good alternative?

I do like pears myself, the softer juicy ones. For a bit of decadence, not a lot, honest (lol), I sometimes (not often, really), dip them in caramel. It kind of makes them extra special.

Dried fruits are good sources of fiber. Raisins are great. So are apples, bananas, avocado, peaches, strawberries, mango and raspberries.
