This Sparked Me!

According to the Mayo Clinic, an apple or pear with the skin contains high fiber. Other high fiber sources are raspberries, strawberries, bananas, artichokes, pistachios, pecan, sunflower seeds, and almonds, lima beans, black beans and kidney beans. Oatmeal & oat bran or an Oat Bran Muffin contain soluble fiber and has fiber that binds with fatty acids to make digestion last longer. Brown Rice and Barley are also high Fiber. If a person does not eat enough fiber you might get gassy!

    Fiber can be found in Vegetables and Fruits which are Gluten free, increase consumption of these in place of breads,cereals and grains. How about a cabbage or romaine lettuce leaf in place of a tortilla or wrap? Spaghetti squash substituted for grain based pasta? These also provide more vitamins and minerals and are in the "less processed food" category, otherwise known as natural and fresh!
