This recipe helps increase dietary fibre intake and promotes regular bowel function. You may have a bloated feeling and more gas when adding fibre to your diet, but this should pass in a few weeks.
1 cup apple sauce
1 cup oat bran or unprocessed wheat bran
3/4 cup prune juice
Begin with 1-2 tablespoons each evening then drink 6-8 ounce of water or juice immediately. After two weeks you will have softer and more regular bowel movements. If no change occurs, slowly increase the amount to 3-4 tablespoons. Plan to make this part of your daily routine for the rest of your lifetime.
You can store the mixture in your refrigerator or freezer. You can also freeze 1-2 tablespoon servings in sectioned ice cube trays or in foam plastic egg cartons and thaw as needed
