This is off the top of my head. Don't sue me. I'm sure others can add more sources.

Protein: lean meats, fish, peanut butter, beans

Iron: spinach, beef, liver (ewwww)

Fiber: fresh fruit and vegetables, oatmeal, legumes, whole grains

Cheese and dairy (like yogurt), tofu = other protein sources

Iron = dark green leafy vegetables (spinach as well as other greens), I think broccoli too, and red meat, of course

Fiber = Ohiogirl81 has it covered!!

That was my thought exactly when I read the OP's question. Lentils are so healthy and good for you. My favorite are the kind from Trador Joe's. They come pre-cooked and seasoned and ready-to-eat right out of the package.

I used to eat that also but try Fiber One with raisins. It's tasty and does the trick if you know what I mean. : )
