LaurenG22---I'm Filipino, that's how we eat. Rice is our staple food and any meal is never complete without rice. :-)

I don't really think about fiber, but when selecting a cereal I try to go for one that's got a lot of fiber in it.

Mostly natural foods high in fiber.I eat a bowl of Uncle Sam Flax Seed ceral in the morning (10g) w/ soy milk (1g).For Lunch I have a morningstar chik pattie (2g) on Natures Promise Bread (3) with hummus (5g). I have lima beans on the side (6g).For dinner I always have at least two vegetables; either peas (4g), a potato (4g) and/or green beans (2g).If I am having spaghetti (Barilla Plus is wonderful (4g), I add either Morningstar Farms Soy Links or the Grillers Soy Meat Crmuble (also my morningstar) which would give me another 2-3g of fiber. The tomato sauce also gives another 2g.I eat raspberries (est 8g) through out the day along with blueberries (4g.)

Oatmeal in the mornings, and I try to fit in other high-fiber items throughout the day. For instance, I'll get my sandwich on whole wheat, or I'll make sure to eat fruit and veg.

I focus on foods that are high in fiber, especially fibrous veggies. I also eat my apples unpeeled, eat whole fruit instead of drinking juice and add flaxseeds to my smoothies :-)

Oh, I also love the Fiberful fruit bars from Trader Joes. And the Fiber One peanut butter bars too.

My first "vitamin" of the day is a fiber supplement that I take when I wake up. Its 4g of fiber, 50% of my daily calcium and some amnt of vitamin D that i can't remember right now. I also try to eat a lot of fruits and veggies. Every day I will either have an apple or a pear since those have a lot of fiber. I keep track of my intake throughout the day and if I've somehow fallen really short, I'll have a 100 calorie bag of popcorn which has 9g of fiber and then my daily intake is usually good, around 30g.

I'm a big fan of Kashi Go Lean Crunch for fiber cereal. It has about 8 grams, and it's super filling for a breakfast item.

I usually get it from dried fruits especially dried apricots.

I just eat different foods that have fiber like cereals, oat bran, yogurt, fruits and veggies. I'm sure I get more fiber from my diet than I would have a couple of years ago.
