Fibers are essential to our health. They are well-known for their role in the regulation of intestinal transit. They also help controlling appetite, glycemia (blood sugar levels) and cholesterol levels. A diet rich in fibers can contribute to healthy weight management and prevent cardiovascular diseases. So, find ways to eat more fibers!
It is proven that the fiber intake of those who eat breakfast is higher. Breakfast is not a meal to overlook! Many foods that are rich fibers, such as bran cereals, whole grain breads and oat are in fact naturally eaten in the morning.
Pasta, bread, quinoa, bulgur, whole wheat couscous, buckwheat, hulled barley, brown rice, popcorn… Read the ingredient list well and make sure that “whole grain” or “whole wheat” is on top of the list for a higher fiber intake. Besides, you should always check the list of ingredients!
Fruits and vegetables are always a good source of fibers!
Whether it’s in a salad, curry, chili, or dessert, legumes are super versatile. And they’re fille with fibers too!
Feeling a bit peckish? Combine a handful of nuts with a fruit for a nutritious and filling snack that’s rich in fibers!
Look for products rich in fibers and take the time to compare nutrition labels. Even a one-gram difference can be significant because, without you even realizing, quantities will add up, and it will be easier to fulfill your needs!
