My favorite high Fiber food that can easily, ahem, end backups (and it is yummy yummy yummy ) is split pea soup… make it yourself easy enough with:

split peas (dried bean section of grocery store, cheap too)

carrots (I use a bag of baby carrots)

chicken stock

either: bone from a spiral ham with some bits still attached, ham hock or two packets of Goya ham seasoning

i pressure cook for about 50 mins in my instant pot and it is sooooo tasty and has about 16 grams of fiber per cup! (If it’s too thick, add Water or stock)

I also use lentils too - they have good plant Protein and high fiber

Nutritional yeast (adds an aged cheese flavor)

chia seed pudding (make with a Protein Shake to add protein)

Ground flax seed (use in oatmeal or make flax crackers )

hemp seeds (also a good source of protein)

psyllium husk powder (what benefiber is made from) can be mixed into muffins, pancakes, or crackers. A little goes a long way!

Cocoa powder
