what foods give you the most fiber?

I'm looking to increase my fibre intake but unsure of which foods contain a high amount of fibre.

The skins on fruits such as apples and pears x
Oatmeal, fruits, beans, whole grains, okra, any fibrous veg, fiber cereals, double fiber bread from the market. And of course, there is the fiber by the spoonful approach!

quinoa, roasted edamame, whole wheat pasta

Apples, pears, bananas, kiwis, whole wheat stuff (whole rye is even better, mm), beans and a lot of other things. 

All Bran Orginal Cereal 1 cup is close to if not 100% of your daily intake

Oatmeal, bananas, raspberries,

I love these whole wheat wraps called Extreme Wellness. Loads of fiber and very yummy and filling!

When I am buying mostly starchy foods (chips, cereal, pasta etc.) I don't want to pay more than 50 calories per gram of fiber.  For example, if a bag of chips has 110 calories and one gram of fiber, it goes back on the shelf in favor of a brand that has 120 calories and 3 grams of fiber.  I have found that the higher fiber foods satisfy me more than the lower fiber counterparts.

I use the xtreme wellness tomato basil wraps, they are very tasty.  Some of the food we used to put on rice, like stir fry, we now serve in a high fiber wrap.  Not only does that increase the fiber and reduce the calories, since we don't need as much stir fry sauce to flavor the rice, we have also reduced the sodium.

Cinnamon, flax seeds, wheat germ :)

Lentils, Beans, Bran, Artichokes, Green Beans, Winter Squash, Flax, Hemp, Chia, Raspberries, Brussels Sprouts, Avocado... this list could go on for days! lol
