Yams and sweet potatoes have a good fibre content! I usually cut them up, boil them and add a little margarine and brown sugar to them and eat! makes a yummy snack or side dish.

Cooked spinach also has fibre, I like to fry it up with an onion, salt and pepper.

I am on a vegan diet so I get a lot of fibre from all the foods I eat, perhaps try looking at some vegan recipes, i always have more than enough in my diet :)

Get some ground flaxseed. Add it to hot cereal, dry cereal, yougurt, in recipes. A serving is 1 or 1 1/2 tbsps, I have read both amounts. Since I have been using it, I have had no problems with my elimination problems.

I use Benefiber in our orange juice; adding it to the water before I add the frozen concentrate. It stirs in and dissolves completely, has no color and no taste. I use 3 Tablespoons in a large can of juice.

We also snack on these home made Banana Bars.
Mix together dry ingredients:

* 1/2 cup Chopped Almonds
* 1 cup Oatmeal
* 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
* 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon Ginger
* 1/2 teaspoon Cloves,
* 1 1/2 teaspoons Soda
* 1/4 cup Konsyl
* 1/2 to 1 cup raisins as you like
* 1/2 cup Splenda (optional)
* 1/4 cup Flax Seed (Optional)

Note: Konsyl is a sugar free 100% Psyllium Fiber product available at the pharmacy. This is added because most people do not get enough fiber in their diet.

Mix together liquid ingredients:

* 1 cup Non Fat Buttermilk
* 1 cup Unsweetened Applesauce,
* 1 large mashed banana (1/2 to 3/4 cup)

Stir the liquids into the dry mixture thoroughly, making sure they are all moistened. Spray a 9X13 pan with a non-stick spray, and spread the dough evenly in the pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees F. Cool and cut in squares.


To get the health benefits, be sure to use Whole Wheat Flour (preferably Stone Ground), and the Konsyl. Do not substitute or omit these ingredients.

Buy whole wheat pasta and have brown rice at all times. Not only is it higher in fiber, but it's much healthier for you and has a low GI index. Find some bulgur wheat and use it instead of rice or cous cous in recipes. Or, add it to your rice or cous cous. It's got a ridiculous amount of fiber and also lots of protein.

Peanut butter is also high in fiber.

If you can find it in your local grocery store, there's a cereal called Fiber One which also has tons of fiber in it.

I know these aren't recipes, but look at this page, it has lots of common foods with their fiber content. A lot of the time you can just make small changes to your current recipes by adding whole wheat or brown counterparts or by adding lentils and beans to really boost the fiber in them:

Hubby and I enjoy salmon or mackerel patties. Once when we ran out of saltine crackers just before payday, we used some bran cereal we had on hand instead of the crackers to make them. They were delicious! I'm guessing you could substitute any bran cereal (such as All-bran) in any recipe that calls for crumbled crackers or corn flakes. You'll add flavor as well as fiber.

I keep several foods on hand to increase my fiber intake--avocados, chick peas, fiber one cereal, Fiber one granola bars, if I'm on the go (they taste great), dried figs and apricots and flax seeds or flax seed bran to add to just about anything and popcorn. Pretty painless and I like all these foods.
