Okay, I was just diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and in addition to cardio 4 days a week and medication, I'm supposed to eat high fiber and low fat. I have no idea what is good for fiber, except for like . . . celery and wheat bread. Any ideas? My mom said it sounds like Weight Watchers, but I really don't want to pay for that.

beans! Veggies! Whole grain cereal!

Try making things like vegetarian chili, veggie stirfry, bean salads, any kind of veggie salad (but watch the dressing--some are very high fat), hummus...

Good luck with your illness.

Oh, I forgot about all that stuff. Are soft veggies, like tomatoes and peas and squash, high in fiber too?

Really nice bean recipe
With a little bit of oil in a pan add a big plop of curry paste.  Cook for a minute. Add a small can of light coconut milk and get it nice and hot.  Now add a can of black beans.  After 5 minutes or so you can add a chopped up mango (optional) and cook for a bit longer.   Serve on brown rice.  As long as you go easy on the oil and use light coconut milk this is quite low-fat.
If you aren't already cook vegetarian more often.  Meat has no fiber, veggies and beans have lots.

Learn to cook Indian dahl (lentil dish) and serve on brown rice.  Virtually no fat and super high fiber.

A nice high fiber, low fat treat would be dried apricots.

Good luck.

all sorts of things are high fiber...  it might be easier to first concentrate on avoiding that which is low fiber.

just searching for "high fiber diet" reveals a ton of websites that specialize in this direction.
http://www.slrhc.org/healthinfo/dietaryfiber/fibercontentchart.html is a list of common foods' fiber contents.  High fiber is 3g or more per serving.

My brother has Chronic Fatigue as well, good luck and just basically try to keep healthy... drink water, eat well, keep regular hours, and make sure to get good play time in.

look for the Kashi http://www.kashi.com/ of cereal and other goodies. They are yummy & high fiber.

South Beach diet is high fiber, low fat. You should be able to get a copy of the book about the diet from your local library.

Sounds like you've got some changes to make.  Good Luck to you!

Curry Paste

This sounds like a really good recipe.  Can you get curry paste at a regular grocery store or do I need to go to a specialty store?

Thanks

Almost every grocery store I go to around here has it.   It comes in a glass jar-- oh and make sure you get Indian, not Thai paste.

One change to the recipe.  Add the coconut milk after the beans.  Last night i made this throwing in some mango chunks from the freezer and it was outstanding.
