Oranges & other high-fiber fruit

Price: $1.49 per pound for navel oranges

Fruit is an easy food to like, so it’s comforting to know that it’s good for your heart as well as healthy in a general sense. Some fruits are especially high in soluble fiber — the kind that lowers bad cholesterol and blood pressure — which will give you the same kind of health benefits you’d get from oats or beans.

Oranges are especially high in soluble fiber, and they don’t require any special preparation aside from peeling. Apricots, apples and pears also are good sources of fiber, though you should eat them with their skins on to get the full effect.

How to eat them

Aside from eating them out of hand, you can add orange segments or slices of other fruits in salads and even savory dishes to increase their nutritional value. Grilled fruit is especially tasty as a garnish on low-fat grilled meats or poultry. You can even grill fruit to make a tasty dessert.
