We've got more fiber-packed products here than you can shake a stick at! (What does that even mean, anyway?) Scroll down for great fiber finds with WAY more flavor than that stick you're shaking.   
First in Fiber...

The best place to get your fiber is from natural sources...

Vegetables (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, leafy greens)

Fruits (apples, berries, plums, pears)

Whole grains (brown rice, oats, whole-wheat products)

Beans (pick a bean, any bean!)
TOP ATE Fiber-licious Products We LOVE!

The first three will be in the HG Hall of Fame someday...


1. Fiber One Original Bran Cereal

PER SERVING (1/2 cup): 60 calories, 1g fat, 105mg sodium, 25g carbs, 14g fiber, 0g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*

Even with all the other great products F1 has been cranking out lately (the 50-calorie yogurt is DEFINITELY on our HOT list), we've gotta give props to the stuff that started it all. We're sooooo happy that Fiber One made its way into our blender and onto those onion rings. WE LOVE YOU, Fiber One!  


2. Triple Chocolate Chunk VitaTops

PER SERVING (1 VitaTop): 100 calories, 1.5g fat, 150mg sodium, 23g carbs, 5g fiber, 10g sugars, 3g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

Yeah, we talk about them almost as much as we chew them (which is a LOT), but no fiber-ific TOP ATE list could exist without Vitas. Vitalicious has come a long way, with new flavors and products (Vita coffee, anyone?), but this decadent, chocolate-packed muffin top is still our favorite. We like 'em plain, in recipes, and even straight out of the freezer. SO YUMMY!
3. La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Low Carb High Fiber Large Tortillas

PER SERVING (1 tortilla): 80 calories, 3g fat, 300mg sodium, 18g carbs, 12g fiber, 1g sugars, 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*

Another one of those super-special staples that helps to boost our fiber intake through the roof. (The roof! The roof! The roof is on fiber! Sorry, couldn't help it.) Just look at those stats -- they speak for themselves. Is it any wonder we love these wraps? (Pssst! The fact that they taste great doesn't hurt either.) 


4. FiberGourmet Light Pasta

PER SERVING (2 oz. uncooked): 130 calories, 1g fat, 120mg sodium, 42g carbs, 18g fiber, 2g sugars, 6g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*

This stuff makes ordinary whole-wheat pasta seem skimpy on fiber. We've always liked the long fettuccine noodles, but the newer short shapes -- especially the penne and rotini -- rock our pasta-loving socks off. Click here to find a store near you that stocks the wonder noodles, or just order online.
5. Progresso High Fiber Soup

PER SERVING (1 cup): 90 - 130 calories, 1.5 - 4g fat, 690mg sodium, 18 - 26g carbs, 7g fiber, 2 - 13g sugars, 3 - 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2 - 4*

This stuff is relatively new, but since it combines two things we LOVE -- delicious guilt-free soup and a ton of fiber -- we can't ignore it. In varieties like Chicken Tuscany, Creamy Tomato Basil, Hearty Vegetable and Noodles, and Homestyle Minestrone, it makes us happy! 


6. Kashi Mayan Harvest Bake

PER SERVING (One 10-oz. entrée): 340 calories, 9g fat, 380mg sodium, 58g carbs, 8g fiber, 19g sugars, 9g protein -- PointsPlus® value 9*

In all the raving we've done over how delicious this stuff is, we may have neglected to highlight another attribute we love about it: the 8 grams of fiber. Between the grains, sweet potatoes, black beans, and pumpkin seeds, this entrée has it going ON, fiber-wise. Way to go, Kashi people! 
7. Arnold/Brownberry/Oroweat Sandwich Thins

PER SERVING (1 roll): 100 calories, 1g fat, 210 - 230mg sodium, 21 - 23g carbs, 5g fiber, 2g sugars, 4 - 5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

Yes, they're tasty, slim, and low in calories... but among those low numbers and sleek proportions is a big 5 grams of fiber per roll. And this is just a building block of an item, too. Imagine all the stuff you can load onto this thing! It's the maximum-fiber bang for your minimum-calorie bread-y buck. YAY!


8. Just Tomatoes, Etc! Just Blackberries

PER SERVING (1 oz.): 90 calories, 0.5g fat, 0mg sodium, 22g carbs, 9g fiber, 14g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*

WHOA. We're big fans of the freeze-dried fruit, but we're calling out the crunchy blackberry variety as a fiber all-star. An ounce may not SOUND like a lot, but since these babies are SUPER-light, you get a nice big portion size (about a cup). Berries rule!
