    Beans, lentils, and quinoa have high amounts of fiber. A serving of rice and beans, lentil pasta, or a veggie burger will go a long way in helping you get past the fiber threshold.

    I eat whole food plant based as much as possible, with the goal of half a meal being cruciferous veggies. That paired with beans, whole grains, oatmeal, whole fruit etc…makes getting enough fiber pretty easy. You could also try putting flax seed or chia seeds in your oatmeal for a boost.

    Not nearly as much as I should. But that’s not helpful, is it? Definitely won’t be trying that stuff you bought 🤣

    happiekrappie :  I use water soluble fiber. It doesn’t taste of anything and does not get thick in the same way that psyllium fiber does. 

    I just get a large tub from coscto and chuck in 3 tsp. first thing in the morning

    I’ve never paid attention, but we have an apple orchard so at the moment at least, I’m consuming plenty.  My son hasn’t had a solid diaper in at least a month, he likes them so much.  My understanding is that if you eat a balanced meal, you’ll be fine for vitamins, fiber, etc, never mind that things like cereal are pumped full of them anyway.

    Yep that stuff is nasty… I’ve since switched to Yerba Prima Daily Fibre Caps, seems to have a good blend of different fibres and they’re only like $10/bottle at Walmart. The only way I found to choke it down was to use a blender to mix it with some strong fruit-flavoured preworkout and a bit of water, then mix the gross mixture into some yogurt with fruit. It made it easier to choke down a few mouthfuls with the yogurt and fruit to help temper the taste a bit.

    They make psyllium husk in capsule form.

    I take it because my IBS eliminates a lot of high fiber foods from my diet.  I also have chia pudding most mornings.

    Benefiber also makes an tasteless easily disolvable fiber supplement.

    Here to agree that psyllium husk is the most awful stuff.

    I’m currently pregnant and on a double dose of iron supplements, so my fibre intake is currently off the charts to counter those two things. I haven’t touched psyllium husk again though ewwwwww!
