High Fiber

I am always on a quest for foods high in fiber. Metamucil after dinner, double fiber bread, check the ingredients on the box of whatever to see if there is any fiber at all in it.

So, when looking at the tortillas in the grocery store planning to make some bean burritos (beans and their wondrous fiber) I decided on the whole wheat with flax and grains and loads of fiber and only 100 calories healthy tortillas.

Never again.

I really don't like whole wheat tortillas, they just don't taste right, and these extra whole wheaty flax 100 calorie tortillas tasted even worse. Keith said they tasted like eating mold. Yum.

And then not twenty minutes after eating my moldy tasting burrito my stomach started to hurt.

There is such a thing as too much fiber in your tortilla. Too much gas producing stomach ache making fiber. I'll stick with the unhealthy low fiber white flour tortillas from now on.

I can't eat those high fiber granola bars either, unless I want to spend the rest of my day passing gas that is. I bought some Kashi bar things, they look like a peanut log with nuts on the outside of them and an almost candy bar like filling, and they taste good but again, twenty minutes later your stomach starts to swell up with gas and hurts and I'm sorry, but that's not a fun way to get your fiber.

What's weird is the double fiber bread doesn't bother me at all.

OMG I ate one, fricking one, Fiber One bar and that is what kick started my last bout of intestinal crappola that lasted for 2 weeks. Now I am afraid of fiber.
