The Best High-Fiber Lunch, Per a Dietitian

According to the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, women should consume 25 grams of fiber daily and men 31 grams. 

 Choosing refined grains over whole grains or not eating enough vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts, and seeds can cause this. 

Because fiber promotes health and prevents and treats cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Since fiber takes longer to digest, it makes meals more filling.

To make this fiber-packed lunch, toss cauliflower florets and chickpeas with olive oil, curry powder, and salt.

 Cook quinoa while those ingredients roast and flavor. Before the chickpeas and cauliflower are done roasting, quinoa cooks in 15 minutes.

Final preparation is a simple dressing of tahini, lime zest, juice, garlic, and pepper. Mix it up for a tasty meal.

Make a big batch of quinoa on the weekend or when you have extra time and store it in the fridge or freezer until you're ready to eat.
