In the book, I have listed many common fruits (also seeds, nuts, legumes, herbs, vegetables etc.) that are high in fiber. My question is simple: which fruit has the best sugar-to-fiber ratio? Fruit is defined as something where we eat the flesh surrounding the seeds (even if we also eat the seeds). Tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers qualify but not walnuts or sunflower seeds (we eat the seeds and not the flesh). Some (like quinoa) we could debate, but lets not get too picky about our definition and you're welcome to argue your case. The top 3 winners get a free copy of the Fiber for Life book (or a voucher to buy something else if you already have it). Below a few examples for you to beat (please list your source and grams per 100g) Avocado: They have a sugar-to-fiber ratio of 0.1 (sugar: 0.66g and fiber: 6.7g per 100g), source: reliable (USDA) Fresh green almonds (you eat the flesh, nut and even the still soft shell): They have a sugar-to-fiber ratio of 0.3 (sugar: 3.5g and fiber: 10.6g per 100 g), source: not reliable (myfitnesspal) Okra (yes it is a fruit): They have a sugar-to-fiber ratio of 0.5 (sugar: 1.48g and fiber: 3.2g per 100g), source: reliable (USDA) Passionfruit: They have a sugar-to-fiber ratio of 1.1 (sugar: 11.2g and fiber: 10.4g per 100g), source: reliable (USDA) Remember that a sugar-to-fiber ration that is smaller than 4 is healthy, so the above examples can be considered super-fruits. In case you're wondering, this is a closeup of an avocado (where it attaches to the plant) that was made into a delicious guacamole

Lets share ideas for adding fiber to our lives. The only challenge is to come up with ways that are affordable (so that everyone can benefit) pleasureful (so that people want to do it) do not change lifestyle (so that it is sustainable) In case you're wondering, the picture is of blueberries that I picked this summer. They have a sugar-to-fiber ratio of 3-4, so happily in the healthy corner. There are many myths about them such a good for our eyesight, but unfortunately not substantiated by proper evidence.

Change is both difficult and easy. When things align within us then change happens naturally, however when we are distracted, not in touch with ourselves, or are uncertain about the outcome, we tend to stick to the known (even if the known is not good for us). How many people stay in unfulfilling relationships, stress-eat knowing that it is harmful, self-harm physically or psychologically? So how do we align things within us? This is a longer discussion, so lets start... In case you're wondering, the picture is a closeup of a raspberry. They have a sugar-to-fiber ratio of less than 1, so in the super healthy corner.
