If you’re trying to slim down for spring, but still want to stay full and not be a grouch, you’re in luck! Vegetables are not only in season, but also very filling. Well, depending on which ones you buy.

In my weight loss journey through Profile by Sanford, I am learning so much about food and what they can do for your body. This week at my meeting with my Profile coach we talked about Fiber and what it can do for you.

Here are the veggies you should be eating if you want to get fit, but still want to feel like you ate a full meal.

Artichokes – You’ve probably heard fiber is key to filling you up. One medium artichoke has more than 10 grams of fiber—that’s nearly twice as much as broccoli!

Sweet Potatoes Starchy veggies like sweet potatoes and parsnips get a bad rap, but research shows that the specific kind of fiber they contain, may actually help keep you full longer and level out blood sugar levels.

Fennel РOne fiber-rich vegetable I like is fennel. You can saut̩ it, use it as a garnish, eat it raw. It tastes a little like black licorice.

Peas They have protein as well as fiber for double the satiating quotient.

Brussel SproutsThey’re delicious when roasted with a little olive oil (but don’t use too much!) Put them over quinoa in a bowl aside chunks of roasted sweet potatoes and topped with feta cheese. Yumm!
