How can people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) get more veggies in their diet?

ANSWER

  • Vegetables offer loads of fiber plus antioxidants that can help fight heart disease and some types of cancer. Here are a few examples: 1 cup carrot slices, cooked = 5 grams of fiber
  • 1 cup cooked broccoli = 4.5 grams of fiber
  • 1 sweet potato = 4 grams of fiber
  • 1 cup cauliflower, cooked = 3 grams of fiber
  • 2 cups raw spinach leaves = 3 grams of fiber
