According to Sparkpeople, I am WAY low on fiber intake, which was surprising to me because I thought that since I eat so many vegetables, my fiber intake would be better than it is. What do you do to get more fiber?
I usually have a knitting project in mind when I write it into one of my books, but Laura’s apricot-colored shawl just kind of appeared upon the page as I was writing the first scene of Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 4: Betrayer , and it surprised even me. I immediately went to my yarn stash to find a yarn for it, and I searched through my antique knitting books to find some stitch patterns. I made her an elegant wool shawl she could wear at home. The shawl ended up tagging along with Laura into the next book, Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 5: Prisoner , where it imparts some comfort to her in her trying circumstances. The two stitch patterns are both from the same book, The Lady’s Assistant, volume 2 by Mrs. Jane Gaugain, published in 1842 . A couple excessively clever and creative knitters might have knit these patterns in the Regency era, but they would have only passed them around by word of mouth or scribbled “recipes” to friends or family, and it wouldn’t have been widely use
Prunes and raisin bran!ReplyDelete
Ooooh for some reason I didn't think of prunes. Thanks!Delete
I have that same issue. Plus I struggle to keep the protein anywhere close on a daily basis. If not for my daily protein drink I would hardly have any. I thought carrots and celery would up fiber. Nope.ReplyDelete
I know, right??? I ate tons of carrots and discovered they don't have as much fiber as I thought!Delete
To help with protein and fiber, I eat Greek yogurt with Fiber One (or some other high fiber cereal like that...the original Fiber one...and lately had to get Bran Buds because they didn't have Fiber One). I think Fiber One is 57% of daily fiber...in with the yogurt (and I get Dannon Oikos) it doesn't taste bad at all!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I'll look into that. I'm not a huge fan of cereal, but putting it into yogurt doesn't sound so bad.Delete
