In my quest to try healthy, natural foods I purchased cocao nibs and chia seeds. I have used both separately, but today I came up with what I thought was a wonderfully healthy breakfast - quick oats, pb2, 2 Tbsp cocao nibs, 1 tablespoon chia seeds and almond milk. Turns out this breakfast had 21 grams of fiber. Ouch! It reminds me of the first time I tried Fiber One bars. I liked them so much I ate 2... And ended up with horrible stomach cramps for 2 days.(I affectionately call those fiber one bars diarrhea bars! Haha)
Not to be gross, but I am bloated beyond belief and having horrible stomach cramps. I have been drinking lots of water to alleviate the situation, but I definitely know I will never combine several high fiber ingredients in 1 recipe again. Whew!!
