With the start of the new year, one way to eat better is by eating more fibre!
We need 25-38 grams of fibre every day, but most of us are only getting about half of that amount! There are generally 2 main types of fibre:
- Soluble fibre – this is the type of fibre that can help lower blood cholesterol and control your blood sugar. It’s found in foods like apples, oranges, carrots, oats, barley, beans and lentils.
- Insoluble fibre – this is the type of fibre that helps you stay regular. It’s found in fruits, veggies, whole grains and bran.
How can you get enough? As a regular dietitian expert featured on Your Morning, I shared a few simple tips for boosting fibre at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
