Women need between 25 and 30 grams of fiber a day, and sometimes meals alone won't bring you to your daily quota. I'm always looking for quick snacks that are high in fiber, and when I came across these new Cascadian Farm Fiber Right Bars ($4) at the store, they looked like a tasty way to help me reach my goal.

This bar was satisfyingly crunchy and sweet, like a homemade cookie, and I liked the layer of creamy almond butter spread on the top. I wasn't pleased to see that the number two ingredient is sugar, but as you can see from the nutritional info, these bars contain only 10 grams of sugar per two-bar serving. Not too bad.
Other granola bars such as Bear Naked Grain-ola Bars and Kashi TLC bars contain about four grams of fiber, so with a name like "Fiber Right," I expected these to contain more than just five grams per serving. I suppose five is better than nothing, but I think the name is slightly deceptive. And since I like to reserve my sugar intake to really decadent treats like ice cream and chocolate, I don't think I'll be buying these again as a source of fiber. There is plenty of other low sugar, natural snacks that are higher in fiber like fruits and nuts, nut butter and bread, and veggies and hummus.
