MightyFull's Journal, 15 September 2018

Hurricane Florence - so far just 20-35 random gusts of wind and light to moderate rain. Tomorrow is supposed to be heavier. But we will see!

I made the decision to change my RDI from 1600 to 1800. I've been way over all week, and it's not that I cannot do the 1600, I can, but it means I have a protein shake for dinner, and frankly I need more fiber to keep the gut working properly, and that is really tough to do on 1600.

Anyone have any great high fiber meals they can share? I made a black bean and rice soup/stew - and added zucchini (3 large ones!).

I was having such a hard time getting enough fiber that my doctor finally had me start Optifiber (that is Costcos store brand, but any of the ones that mix in cleanly work). I put a scoop in my morning coffee, and never know it's there, but my guts love me for it.

Interesting that you put in your coffee! Must dissolve very well!

I add the orange flavored Psyllium to my vanilla protein shake and it tastes like a orange Dreamcicle. Nice treat and helps with the fiber.

tree nuts (pecans and walnuts are my faves)

I add beans and nuts to most veggie sides and salads.

Try chicory. It brews up like a coffee or can be added to coffee. It's a Prebiotic, which means it's helping to feed the probiotic in your system. It is a good source of inulin fiber; it will help to keep you regular, while at the same time helping to regulate your blood sugar. Plus, I love the flavor! And it's very low in calories / carbohydrate.
