Fill Your Diet With Fibre

Despite the fact that fibre is a vital nutrient within any healthy diet, recent research found that fewer than 10 per cent of adults meet the recommended goal of eating 30 grams a day. Nevertheless, dietary fibre provides a variety of important health benefits, including:

  • Promoting proper gut functioning by preventing constipation
  • Reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and bowel cancer
  • Lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes by helping control high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure.

Make sure you maintain the proper daily fibre intake and foster a healthy diet by using the following top nutrition tips:

  • Reach for wholegrains – An important element of a fibre-rich diet is incorporating healthy carbohydrates into your meals. This includes eating high-fibre breakfast cereals such as wholewheat biscuits, wholemeal breads, wholewheat pasta or brown rice.
  • Just add fruit – Eating fresh or dried fruit is a perfectly sweet way to add essential fibre into your diet. Consider putting fruit on top of your meal (eg on a salad, porridge or yoghurt) or eating it as a snack.
  • Pack in the pulses – Various pulses (eg beans, lentils and chickpeas) provide substantial amounts of fibre. Try including pulses within your soup, stew and curry recipes.
