The increase in gluten free foods in the supermarket has made it so much easier for celiacs and the gluten sensitive to find suitable foods to eat. However, many of these products are overly processed and offer little nutritional value to the gluten free diet.
Fiber rich foods are very important when it comes to eating gluten free. Typically, when an individual transitions to a gluten free diet, they start eating many gluten free products such as breads, cookies, baked goods, pastas and rice which offer very little to no fiber. Subsequently, overall fiber intake drops. Long term risks of a low fiber intake can contribute to ongoing digestive problems such as constipation and contribute to the development of additional health conditions such as type two diabetes, weight management problems, mood imbalances such as depression, cancer, high cholesterol and more.
Read below where I highlight 30 healthy gluten free foods that are high in fiber and also taste delicious (in no particular order)!
