Try this recipe for Flax Bran Muffins. They have 5 grams of fiber and the flax and walnuts are FULL of omega-3s. I just made them for the first time and they rock! I substituted dried cranberries for raisins, and only used one apple (instead of the two). All my coworkers loved them. I plan on making them every other week and keeping them in the freezer so I can heat one up and take with me on my commute. Let me know what you think! :)

I like the Kashi Good Friends cereal - high fiber, but not too 'twigs 'n berries'-like. If I add a bannana or strawberries it's a downright filling meal.

The low carb wraps from La Tortilla Factory pack a lot of fiber into a fairly low-calorie wrap and are quite tasty with good texture. Fill them with spinach, chopped carrot, peppers, cucumber, tomatoes and a little turkey and feta for a yummy and filling lunch. I moisten a paper towel, place it on a square of tinfoil and wrap the whole thing up in that and it stays fresh all day in a lunch bag. The paper towel either absorbs excess moisture from the veggies or keeps the tortilla from drying out.

To me fiber and protein are the keys to staying full. I prefer to consume fiber in veggies or grain products rather than take supplements. One of my strategies is that I don't buy any bread product with less than 4 g per serving. As for fruits - berries, I believe, pack the most fiber and they're high in antioxidents so I usually reach for them first followed by apples.

Found in cereal isle also I love weight watchers chochlate mint crunch bars they have 4 or 5 grams of fiber and you can buy at center do not have to be a member to buy products at store. These make great replacement for a candy bar.

Benefiber

I use Benefiber which is a powder you place in your beverage or food 3 times a day. (2 teaspoons each time and it disappears quickly). There is no tast whatsoever and it imparts 3 g. dietary fiber per dose.

I also use Beano, since when you add high fiber to your diet suddenly, you have flatulence issues. Beano is a natural enzyme which helps your gut process the additional fiber.

The highest fiber food I've found are beans, particularly baked beans and lima beans.

I have been trying to add more fiber to my diet too. I noticed that it keeps me full longer, that is always an added plus. But today I looked at my bread which I thought would be packed with fiber since it has 15 kinds of grains and nuts and such. 1 gr per slice. I need to watch that.

My only idea is to try wasa.
I love wasa with fat free cream cheese on it.
I also will add a protien or fruit slice or for those who use it, splenda sprinkled on it.

Thanks for all the good ideas.
