Naturally Gluten Free Foods

Many foods are naturally gluten free. These include: fruit, vegetables, salad, rice, potato, corn, plain meat (not sausages), fish, eggs,  milk, and most yoghurts and cheese, pulses (peas, beans and lentils). You can eat all of these on a gluten free diet, however some foods like milk and cheese have very little fibre.

One  Final Recommendation
Fibre and water must go hand in hand to avoid constipation, so include plenty of water  in your gluten free fibre diet
Also add fibre to your diet slowly, especially if you are very low in dietary fibre now, and of  course lots of water to flush out your system.
