I would like to share with you some fantastic gluten-free (GF) products that meet the Spectrum guidelines for fibre AND taste fantastic!

1. SilverHills GF Chia Chia Bread & GF Omega-flax Bread–Each slice of this delicious bread contains 70-80 calories and packs 5 grams fibre-A feat for typical gluten-free breads which generally lack any fibre at all.  …and it’s achieved without the addition of gums, binders, or starch. Find it at Whole Foods, Safeway, and Costco.

2. The Simply Bar – With 160 calories, 4g fibre, and 16g protein a piece, these bars are a quick and easy snack that is sure to bridge the gap between meals thanks to the impressive fibre and protein content. Pick from 5 flavours at Whole Foods and various specialty food stores.

3. Nutracleanse—This delicious, all-natural blend of ground organic flax seed, psyllium, dandelion root powder, burdock root powder, and fenugreek seed powder was designed to help you meet your daily fibre needs. Each 1/3 cup serving has 14g fibre and 140 calories. Simply sprinkle on yogurt, hot/cold cereal, or add to your smoothie or healthy muffin recipe. Found at Stongs, Choices Markets, and some supplement stores.

4. Beanitos—These tasty chips are not your average chip…Thanks to beans at the top of the ingredients list, you get 8g fibre and 9g protein per 18 chips! Talk about bang for your buck! Just remember, they still have the same calories as standard chips so be sure to watch portions. We’ve seen them at Whole Foods and London Drugs.
