    High fiber food to eat with omelet?

    I'm looking for something high fiber to eat with a ham & cheese omelet for breakfast. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Kashi GoLean, although that's really a meal in itself.

    You might want to try Fiber one cereal, it's def. high in fiber and very low cal (80 calories for 1/2 cup) Maybe you could eat a handful of that, or maybe mix it in with some lite yogurt. If you don't want to overdue your calorie intake with eating fiber, there's always the fiber pills/mixes (Metamucil). With your omelet, try mixing some broccoli/cauliflower in it, those two are high in fiber and low cal, and def. add's to the taste of your omelet.

    Hope that helps!

    Re: High fiber food to eat with omelet?

    I like to put a about 1/2 cup of asparagus cuts & tips (the end pieces)....inside my omelet with ham......asparagus is pretty low in carbs and not high in calories but not to high in fiber!!!.... 1/2 cup is like 1 gram of dietary fiber! .... but it has pretty good taste and you get a lot of good nutrition from eatting asparagus.

    It's pretty high in sodium/ you may want to watch out for that if you have any heart problems?
    I just use the store brand in the can from wal-mart.

    Based on about 4/5 pieces or 1/2 cup
    Total carbs 3 g ...1%
    sodium....430g...18%<<<<
    Dietary Fiber 1 g...4 %
    cholesterol....0%
    saturated fat...0%
    vitamin A bout... 8%
    vitamin c bout... 25%
    protein bout... 2 g
    sugars bout.... 2 g
    Iron bout....4%
    calcium... 0%
    (Breakfast only)
    Maybe when your eatting a low carb breakfast like this fiber "SHOULD NOT" play a big roll in your daily nutrition at this meal time? so 1 gram of fiber should be satisfactory! Unless your eatting breads too?
    The sodium you may need to watch tho???????

    If you don't have a taste for asparagus...then just scratch all the above...lol

    How about besides adding veggies adding a couple slices of whole grain toasted bread. Some sliced fruit would be a good idea also.

    Or you could add some greens (spinach or kale) or even okra (it's really quite good in an omelet, and if you saute it whole it does not get so slimy).

    Aunt Judy,

    I value your views so much, but okra in an omelet????

    The spinach idea is a great one, though, I'll grant you that. A spinach and cheddar omelet is terrific.

    Spinach is high in iron, lycopene (one of the few good sources that is not red!), calcium although this can unfortunately be bound as oxalates, and sex appeal. Okay, one of those claims was unsupported by the evidence. I think.

    How about a serving of plain oatmeal?
    An Apple?
    Add some broccoli to the omelet?

    I should have prefaced that with the fact that I LOVE okra (and I'm a yankee even). I wouldn't have thought so either, but I guess it must have been the only veggie around one morning and I tried it . . . yeah, do a little saute thing with okra and onions or salsa then add the eggs. Admittedly, I've never done it with ham, but figured since okra and ham are served together so much in southern cuisine that it would work.
