Steak salad
Previous Next 4 of 5 Pack a punch with dinner

As you plan dinner, keep in mind that fruits and vegetables should be about half your meal. Salads are an easy way to accomplish this. This grilled steak salad with roasted corn vinaigrette has nearly 10 grams of fiber.

If eating raw veggies isn't your thing, try adding cooked ones to sauces, soups and stews. For example, toss sauteed vegetables with whole-wheat spaghetti. Have some fruit for dessert to boost the fiber count.
