Along with what Dorothy suggested, Amaranth and Sorghum are whole grain and add fiber. If you can eat oats then that is good also. Also add beans and nuts to the diet. They are very high in fiber. The About.com Celiac Page has a good listing of fiber items.
For some reason Google chrome is not allowing me to paste the link. Do a search for finer in gluten free grains in google and the page was the first that came up.
I add "Fiber one" fiber (5 gms) and raspberries (4 gms) with coconut ice cream (5gms) as a base and make a smoothie plus I up my fiber with fruits, veggies, salads and gluten free oats (5gms) for breakfast daily. Adding ground flax meal to bread, muffins, cooked cereals, grains, casseroles and smoothies will also increase your fiber.

Flax seeds and chia seeds along with psyllium that you can get at a health food store. You can mix ground flax seeds with the psyllium and that will help the psyllium not to gel as fast and you will be able to drink it down.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I'm semi-new to a gluten free lifestyle (diagnosed last May), & I'm having a little trouble getting enough fiber without eating normal bread & cereal. I have been eating vegetables, but I'm still pretty low. Anyone have any suggestions for (natural) sources of gluten-free fiber that can help me get my intake up?
Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!
