Cellulose Cereal: The New Breakfast of Champions

My doctor has been hounding me for years to get more fiber into my diet, but frankly, I hate 36-grain bread and I'm too cheap to spring for Metamucil. Well, the other day while emptying my dust collector and spitting out the usual mouthful of shavings, it hit me: sawdust! Why hadn't I thought of this before!! I've read about a guy that once ate an entire airplane by grinding it up and sprinkling it on his meals a little at a time. It's all about moderation, right? So, why not do the same thing with what I'd just dump into the compost pile anyway? Now, I've got a free source of really
high fiber and let me tell you, my "constitutionals" have never been more, well, effective. In fact, a little red oak topping on my Wheaties in the morning, and I'm sprinting for the porcelain throne in about an hour. Sometimes less. Try it, and you'll see exactly what I mean...but be sure to have your running shoes laced up tight.
