When you first switch to a high-fiber diet, getting used to heartier breads and high-fiber grains can be difficult. If you’re a newbie (or even a veteran), the key is flavorful ingredients.

Fruity Oatmeal

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (prepared) oatmeal (quick rolled oats variety)
  • 1/8 cup trail mix (seeds, nuts and dried fruit variety)
  • 1 splash milk (optional)

Directions:

  1. Mix trail mix into oatmeal.
  2. Add small amount of milk if desired.

Amazing Bleu Cheese Bacon Burger

Ingredients

  • 1 whole-wheat, high-fiber hamburger bun or roll, toasted
  • 1 spicy black bean patty, warmed
  • 1 tablespoon Neufchatel cheese, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1/4 ounce) bleu cheese crumbles
  • 1 slice turkey bacon, cooked crispy
  • 1 leaf romaine lettuce
  • Adobo or hot sauce (optional)

Directions:

  1. Mix bleu cheese with Neufchatel cheese, and spread onto the bottom half of the bun.
  2. Place the black bean patty on the bottom bun. Snap or cut turkey bacon in half and place on the patty to create an "x."
  3. Top meats with lettuce and adobo or hot sauce (if desired), and top with the other half of the bun.

Apple Peanut Butter Snacker

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices whole-grain bread
  • 1/4 small Granny Smith apple, sliced thinly
