    Carb balance tortillas (large size) have 26 grams of fiber. You could sub that out for sandwich bread. Most veggies have a decent amount of fiber. Start swapping out your current side dishes for high fiber veggie or bean dishes.

    Depending on your calorie level, you may need to add something like Metamucil to your daily intake.

    Or if you're really stuck, add a teaspoon of psyllium husks to something you already eat. Don't increase it by more than a teaspoon a week and increase your water by an eight ounce glass per teaspoon unless your over 8glasses already. It works best with stuff like stew or oats that are meant to have a thickened liquid

    I love raspberries, grapes, even prunes for a good fiber hit.

    Roasted chickpeas are good. Easy to make at home from canned. Popcorn is pretty high fiber too, just have to be mindful of any high calorie toppings.

    I like Fiber choice tablets and we also all like Sara Lee White Whole Wheat bread. Some cereals have good amounts of fiber and can be good dry for a crunchy snack.
