I chomp on raw sunflower seeds, or some small chunks of chicken.

I usually get in 18-24 grams a day. I have a shake every day with blueberry, banana, strawberry and spinach. I eat a cup of veggies for dinner each day. I also like 21 grain whole wheat bread I get from the store. The thin sliced Dave’s Killer bread is only 60 calories a slice, but has 4 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. I have a slice with breakfast each day, sometimes as a snack with peanut butter and 1/2 of a small banana on top.

I use Vegga protein powder with one cup of water and one of coconut milk, Then I add one tbs of chia seeds, two tbs of ground flax seed with one cup of blueberries and one cup of mixed frozen spinach and kale. It tastes very good. Also, I heat it up in the microwave for 2 minutes. It is easy to make and goes down really well. It keeps me feeling satisfied for several hours and gets me through my morning exercise.

pistachios I would not have thought of them having fiber. I am so glad I found this message board. You all have great ideas that will help me increase my fiber. Thanks

this sounds kind of silly, but when I am having a problem getting enough fiber, I eat some avocado. Also strawberries have more fiber than most fruits except a banana. I love the pistachio idea..thanks Auna

Breakfast fiber that's pretty low in carbs (in moderation)
Crispbread: GG Bran Crispbread, Wasa, and Leckstands are my favorites.

Love the Go Raw crackers. Pears, apples, or oatmeal with cinnamon, 1 T. walnuts, and a few dark chocolate chips, yum!

Thankful...Grateful...Joyful...Blessed.

My sister has to follow gluten free, so we help her out by looking at the new stuff in the grocery stores.
Just bought her Go Raw brand, Sunflower Seed, Sprouted Flax Snax.

I've noticed that it's cheaper to buy pistachios in bulk than any other nuts, and it has protein and fiber. You might try to find a place near you that sells it at a good price. The bulk bins are really the way to go with this, they really offer the best value for your money. Near Christmas, a lot of stores have mixed nuts in the shell that you can buy, if you like shelling nuts. I think it's fun, personally. It used to be a part of every Christmas to have the nuts in a bowl on the coffee table in the living room. There's a tiny bit of exercise there, shelling the nuts, and it makes you pause before each new nut that you eat. It's somewhat mindful, you know. Also, some of the pistachios that you buy will need shelled, by a nut cracker or a hammer, whatever you have on hand. But most of them can be opened by hand.

I bought a book, a used book at a yard sell, on green smoothies. I'm going to start making them. It's one way to get your plant fiber, and all the benefits that go with eating green, leafy vegetables. I have dental problems, so this really appeals to me. Maybe most people would rather chew all the food. I really can't.

Thank you for starting this thread! I was also sent here from SparkCoach to talk about filling healthy snacks.

Reduced sugar raisins have 100 cals and about 14 grams of fiber. Add a few nuts to that & it is a perfect high fiber filling snack.

Persistence is more important than perfection.

Don't assume your freedoms are assured.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

As part of the Plateau-Busting SP Challenge, I'm to post something about healthy food that has a good amount of fibre.

My favourite high-fibre snacks include raspberries, popcorn and strawberries. What kind of high-fibre snacks do you enjoy?
