Help with categorizing foods into soluble or insoluble fiber

Answered on April 11, 2014

Some websites will say a certain veggie/fruit/nut has soluble fiber, some say it's insoluble fiber. Can you help me find sources of soluble fiber?? I'm trying to slow down digestion and have less soft stools. All I know for sure is sweet potatoes and carrots have soluble fiber. I'm trying to stay away from too high carb foods (like potatoes) though
