Wow, I'm learning a lot about fiber and I think this will help me eat a healthier, high fiber diet (well, obviously right?? lol)

So here are some main food categories that have high fiber:
-Beans & Legumes
-Fiber cereals (grains)
-Vegetables
-Whole grain pastas, rice, breads
-Fruits

So a goal I have is to make a very simple soup very high in fiber...

SOUP IDEAS:
(1-2 veggies, beans, grains, can of tomatoes?) - that should do it!

So for example:
carrots, celery, chickpeas, barley, can of tomatoes, veggie stock?

Wow, I learned what fiber the things i eat have:
-Amy's vegetable lentil soup = 16g/can!
-Fiber cereal = 28g in 1 cup!!
-Chickpeas = 34g in 1 cup!!
-Lentils = 15g in 1 cup
-Black beans = 15g in 1 cup

Hmm I just learned that boiling chickpeas takes them from 34g in 1 cup to 12g....
