Fiber....

Someone today asked me how it is that I get so much fiber in my diet. Here are a few things that I eat that contains high amounts of fiber.

Dark green veggies, such as broccoli and baby spinach
Protein, flaxseed peanut butter
Brown rice
Beans of all kinds but I love cranberry beans, black beans and lentils the best
Bob's Red Mill High Fiber Cereal - 10 grams of fiber for only 1/4 cup!!
Ground flaxseeds
Ezekiel bread products
La Tortilla Smart Wraps - 13 grams of fiber
Lots of apples
Double fiber natures own bread
Natures Grain high protein, fiber bagels - 19 grams for one bagel

So for example today here is what I ate.....

Fiber bread with natural flaxseed peanut butter with skim milk
Fiber protein bagel with fat free cream cheese
Egg whites scrambled with brown rice and 2 cups of baby spinach
Greek yogurt with apple and ground flaxseeds

Hope this helps give you some ideas on how to add fiber into your diet from various soruces.

oh wow THANKS! i LOVE peanut butter, but I'm currently using JIFFY.. and it's probably not the one i should be using!
AND i think i'll check out those bagels!
Because I don't really want to use "Benefiber" but I know my diet is truly lacking in the department!

I really like the double fiber bread, especially since it is lower in calories too. How do you make the scrambled egg whites with rice and spinach, that sounds different but yummy!
