Gluten-Free Foods That Are High in Fibre
Anyone who has had to stick to a gluten-free diet can appreciate how hard it is to get enough fibre (heck even those of us who aren’t gluten-free struggle sometimes!). Fibre not only helps improve digestion, it also keeps us fuller longer and can even lower cholesterol. If you follow a gluten-free diet, try including the following foods more often to keep your fibre intake high.
- Try certified gluten-free oats for breakfast or blend them into a smoothie
- Prepare side dishes using naturally gluten-free whole grains such as wild and brown rice, quinoa, amaranth, and teff
- Snack on a handful of nuts or higher fibre fruits like apples, pears, and berries
- Add beans and lentils to burrito bowls, soups, stews, and sauces
