Are you eating enough fibre?
Most Canadians don’t eat enough fibre. According to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation, adults need 21 to 38 grams per day, but the average Canadian consumes 14 grams daily.
We all know a high-fibre diet is healthy for us-it helps lower blood cholesterol levels, in turn reducing the risk of coronary heart disease; and it also promotes good digestive health (a polite way of saying, it helps prevent constipation and hemorrhoids). But many of us don’t go out of our way to include high-fibre foods in our diet. We think they’re boring, or hard to prepare. Wrong!
Try these 10 tips and you’ll find a high-fibre diet can be as deliciously easy as it is healthy.
