If you are reading the other cockpit crew's musings, you know that at a certain age, plenty people start talking about fiber and how it might improve certain... ah...processes (I'll be discreet about that subject). We have tried the powder in the picture and for this type of product, it is pretty agreeable: a fine powder that is tasteless and dissolves well. The label says that you can add to your favourite recipe (I'm interested in the product, but not that interested).
As for the Ulcerative colitis, well, I suppose that the medicine may be starting to work, but the affected area was quite inflamed and probably will take awhile to fix everything. The GI doctor, as well as my personal physician have said that my case was relatively mild...I'd hate to see what a relatively severe case entails!
I am thinking about trying my hand at vegetarian cooking (not vegan, I like to cook with butter!). Garbanzo salads we have made, with the beans, celery and carrots and that had fiber. I've never cooked eggplant, for instance. Any ideas from my "audience"
