One cup of broccoli will provide you with approximately 20% your daily reccommended amount.

3. High-fiber cereal

Modern technology has created high fiber cereals that actually taste good! Eat a bowl of high fiber cereal with skim milk for a nutritious and filling snack. Throw in strawberries and bananas for extra nutritional benefits.
