Thanks everybody! I've been getting brown rice cakes and I can eat peanut butter, so that, along with fruit (peaches, nectarines, etc.) has been my breakfast this week.

And another thought: remember if increasing or decreasing fiber to do it slowly or incrementally, and always with lots of water.

Rice cakes made from brown rice would have more fiber than ones made from white rice.

Don't forget the veggies like potato and cauliflower and broccoli or legumes like lentilles ...
Or what you think about ricecakes (no I don't mean the tast, but the fibers)

I never are low on fiber because of the fruit and vegies I eat and yes ricecakes for lunch.

I get my fiber from fruits and vegetables as well as adding rice bran to my quinoa sometimes. There is a good gluten free recipe for banana bread on the rice bran package also. I also have a recipe for flax muffins that can be made in a mug. Gluten free doesn't mean low fiber.

Thanks Barb!

I use flax often, and take flax oil, but not consistently.

I knew about fruits--and always get lots of those in my diet--I love this time of year, especially because of the peaches and nectarines and strawberries!

Talk aboout timing. This summary was just posted on the ICORS Celiac Listserve:
Quote:
Thanks to everyone who responded. I am going to try to keep the summary fairly short as most of the response included the same general pointers.

Generally, folks indicated that fiber is something that you need to be aware of on a gluten free diet and have to watch to ensure you get enough of it. Below I have summarized specific suggestions for getting more fiber. Several comments indicated that they do better get small doses from a diverse array of foods, particularly fruits, vegetable and nuts verse adding additional fiber to the grains/carbs they consume. Also choosing when possible commercial brands with brown rice, buckwheat, amarath, millet or quinoa instead of white rice or tapicoa. I do think that some education of the companies that produce GF items may be needed in terms of them adding nutritional value instead of focusing solely on taste.

I did get one response indicating that before adding more fiber you should consult with you GI/nutritionist because fiber can be hard on celiacs and other individuals with gastro-intestinal problems and you need to know whether you need insoluable or soluable fiber.

I also got a yummy chocolate cake recipe that uses beans if anyone would like me share that.

Number One Suggestion:
Flax Seed (ground - can but it at the grocery store)
Basic information can be found on Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flax
If you google cooking with flax seed you will also get a lot of helpful sites. For the amount of carbs, it has a lot of fiber and very low sugar so great for diabetics too. It also has Omega 3s. I still am a bit unclear on how it may change flavor and consistency in baked goods (seem you can use it as subsitute for egg and it should have a "nutty" flavor -- guess this one is a try it ans see)

Number Two:
Shaklee nutritional supplements (folks said ask for their Gluten free list - most used their fiber plan?)

Nuts and seeds, like sunflower seeds

Fruits like pears, peaches, apples or raspberries (a few folks also stated that eating the "peels" is important to get the fiber)

Wild rice

Peanut butter and other nut butters

Refried beans (add some into ground meats and sauces - makes it richer most said but if just a tablespoon or two doesn't affect flavor much)

add pureed vegetables or legumes to baked goods (pumpkine and beans were the tops suggestions but also peas)

Popcorn and cornmeal

oat and oatmeal, if you can tolerate it

glucomannan, mixed with psyllium

Salba (Chia) seeds or ground (good information on this one at www.salba.com)

Inulin (an extract of chicory)

Jarrow Gentle Fibers from www.Vitacost.com .(has soluable and insolubale fiber?)

Coconut

Metamusil (didn't confirm this is gluten free but commenters said they have taken for years without problems)

Fiber capsules

That's a great question. I was wondering the same thing.

What kinds of foods do you eat to get in enough fiber? I used to get it through whole grain breads and cereal, but now....? Rice and corn don't have a lot of fiber and I'm taking a supplement, but I'd much rather get my fiber through foods.

Any suggestions?
