Lower-fiber vegan foods

I just started a low-fat, vegan diet for health reasons, and I think I overdid it on the fiber. I had chickpeas for dinner last night, raisin bran with flax milk for breakfast, lentil soup for lunch... and now my tummy hurts. In a poopish sort of way, except I don't have to actually go
, if that makes any sense.

I mean, I'm sure I will go when I get home from work, but at the moment it's not pressing (ahem.) Hahahaha... I kill me. Anywho...
What are some vegan foods with less fiber I could add to my diet to fill me up so I'm not getting so much fiber all at once? I am under the impression that my system will "adjust" eventually but maybe I need to take it a little slower right now at the beginning. I need ideas for both meal-type foods and snacks.
I'm supposed to be eating mostly low-fat and low-GI, so foods with those characteristics would be great, but if I have to break those rules somewhat at first while I ease into things that's ok too. So, what can I eat that won't hurt? I am eyeing the apple I brought for a snack pretty warily right now.
