I try to make half of my meals fruit and non-starchy vegetables. Starchy stuff I count as carbohydrates and beans are my main source of protein.

I think drinking lots of water helps me also getting at least a couple of tablespoons of healthy oils. I like the way coconut oil makes me feel.

I, too have had to deal with constipation for the first time in my life. Used to have the opposite problem all the time.

Thanks for the recipes! I'm gonna try them all.

Jenn I just take my psyllium husks with water. It tastes like bran to me, not really good but not horrible. I just spoon it out and drink water to wash it down.

If you like oatmeal give this recipe a try: neverlivingwithout.com/2009/10/26/gl

It is really easy and you can adjust to your taste. Add some dried berries and you can get even more fiber!

I cook uop a batch of GF oats so I have enough to just microwave them for a minute on busy mornings. There is a slow cooker way what you can find on the sparkrecipes.
I also use organic cornmeal, lots of quinoa and brown rice and lots of water. I sometimes use psyllium, too.

I agree with the ground flax just make sure you grind it yourself with a little coffee grinder or something. My ND informed me to quit buying the preground stuff as it is usually rancid. She said the oils are so delicate that even your high end more expensive stuff goes rancid too fast. It does more harm than good if it is rancid. You are better off to buy the seeds and then grind them. Just a little tidbit. But flax is very very good for you!

What do you mix the husks in with? Can't do tomato juice (yuck)...lol. I am not a big juice drinker. Mainly coffee water milk and tea.

I take 3-4 spoonfulls of psyllium husk a day in addition to tons of fruits and veggies. The psyllium is the soluble fiber I was lacking due to the GF diet. Been regular ever since! I also drink tomato juice every day for potassium but it has fiber too.

You can get ground flax seeds at Walmart in the vitamin section. Just make sure that you put it in the fridge after you open it.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Jen I made a copy of the recipe for muffins which is called
Muffins in a minute

1 egg
1 tsp olive oil or butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 splenda packet (that equals 1 tsp)
1/4 c flax seed meal

Directions

1 stir dry ingredients together
2.whisk oil and egg
3 mix wet with dry, mix well
5.spray mug/small bowl with nonstick spray
5.Microwave until done (recipe said 1 minute) mine is done in 40 seconds. Don't overcook.

This was from one of the members and I did make it and it is really good. I just microwave mine for 40 seconds and it came out really good.
If you try, let me know what you think.

I tend to get between 35 and 50 grams a day. What helps me:

Protein: BEANS! :)
Fruits: avocado, apples, bananas, strawberries, blueberries
Veggies: lettuce, broccoli, cucumber, radishes
Grains: any that are GF like brown rice, certified GF oats (if you can handle them)

Making your own vegetable/fruit juice is really helpful. We usually do carrot and apple, plus assorted other vegetables (celery, cucumbers, ginger, broccoli, beet greens--whatever is handy). A half cup a day usually does the trick.

I can't seem to get my daily allotment of fiber in. I eat fresh fruits and veggies, take metamucil capsules. Since GF breads have no whole grains in there, I am more constipated than ever!!

Does anyone have ideas how to fix this?? Today I have eaten a clementine, banana, grapes, carrots and will have zucchini/summer squash with dinner.

Thank you!!
