I've been eating Fiber One Cereal every morning but would like an alternative with lots of fiber and small volume. Any suggestions?

Why do you not want to eat the Fiber One anymore? I don't think you can get much more fiber-dense than that stuff unless you look at the fiber powders.

Not sure if this would help, because it is cereal...but Bran Buds...1/3c. has 13g fiber! I eat it with strawberries cut up in it. Mmm...

Lots of veggies, beans, fruit?

I get tons of fiber every day but I don't take anything that is fiber enriched.

I like the fiber one the best myself, but could also take a fiber supplement like benefiber or metamucil, or eat like Nelie suggested. If I feel I need a little something extra I use some ground flax seed.

I made a one minute muffin of ground flaxseed this morning but it was so big I could hardly finish it and it only has 8grams of fiber. I'm just tired of cereal and I've never eaten beans much I suppose because my mom rarely made them. I wish I could find a good recipe for beans that my family would like. Otherwise, I'm pretty good about fruits and veggies.

Red Bean Burgers
Mash 1 can of red beans (drained and rinsed). Add 1/2 onion (chopped fine), 2 tbsp barbecue sauce, 2 tsp chili powder, 1/4 cup bread crumbs and salt and pepper to taste. Shape into 4 patties. Sautee in a lightly oiled/sprayed skillet until hot and nicely browned. Serve like a regular burger! 8 grams of fiber per patty, plus the fiber of the whole grain bun I know you'll choose to serve it on!

I wrap my (occasional) breakfast burrito in a whole wheat, high fiber tortilla. It's 45 calories and I think has 7-8 grams of fiber. Add some veggies into your wrap and you can get 10 grams easy.

I personally love Go Lean cereal (not the crunch-too much sugar) I think it has 13 grams of fiber per cup with only 140 calories!

carolr- just want to say that i love your avatar!!!
snoopy is my fave!

i apologize for not having much to say on the fiber front. what about oatmeal? is somewhat cereal like, servings are generally small, and you can add mix-ins to make it fun. you know, its funny, fiber one makes everything now, but not oatmeal...

Sprinkle 2 tbs of Wheat Bran on top of your yogurt = 6g

I eat a lot of fruits and veggies and get about 30g-46g everyday.

Also, when purchasing breads, compare fiber contents, as well as on cereals.
