For those who suffer from a gluten allergy, maintaining a well-balanced diet can become a complex feat. Indeed, it’s often not until you’re told to refrain from consuming gluten, that you come to the realization in terms of just how many products are actually gluten filled. That being said, difficult is by no means impossible. While it may take a bit more reading and research on behalf of each consumer, it is entirely possible to eat a gluten-free, balanced diet. The following represents the best ways to find gluten-free sources of fiber.
Almonds/ Almond Flour
One great source of fiber is almonds and almond flour. Chock full of “healthy fats”, fiber, and protein eating a serving of almonds or baking with almond flour can add a good dose of fiber to your everyday diet.
Garbanzo Beans (Chickpeas)
A delicious source of fiber, chickpeas can be added to an array of salads and other dishes in order to boost up your fiber intake.
So, this one is clearly a no-brainer. Eating some delectable dark chocolate provides 2 grams of fiber per ounce! What a treat!
Sweet, tasty and rich with antioxidants, raspberries are an excellent source of gluten-free fiber. Add them to your favorite fruit salad or just eat them by the handful. Yummy!
Potatoes/ Sweet Potatoes
This is a great, inexpensive source of fiber for those who are gluten-free. Although there are definitely other vegetables that offer a higher serving of fiber, there are few that are as cheap and versatile as the potato.
High Fiber Cereals
Another great source of fiber is the gluten free, high fiber cereals. They come in an array of varieties and flavors; just be sure to read the label and make certain that the cereal you choose is both high fiber and gluten free.
Three Bakers Breads
