- Read nutrition labels carefully to choose high fibre options. Better yet, look for foods that have more fibre than sugar. Be careful to avoid marketing traps on “health food” items like granola, energy bars, and gluten-free alternatives that often contain high sugar and low amounts of fibre.
- Choose whole grains, like brown rice and whole wheat pasta instead of their white counterparts. Oats, barley, and lentils are healthy sources of carbohydrates that are high in fibre.
- Swap out yogurt for chia pudding. Tip: put chia pudding in the blender before refrigerating the mixture to create a creamier texture.
- Add nuts and chia seeds and to everything – salads, soups, cereal, oatmeal, and baked goods, to name a few!
- Strive to eat beans and legumes at least once per day. Hummus with veggies, or dried chickpeas make for delicious high-fibre snacks, and beans can be added to salads, soups or roasted veggie dishes.
Soluble fibre is an integral part of a healthy diet. It forms a gel-like matrix that slows the absorption of sugars to stabilize blood sugar levels, reduces cholesterol levels, nourishes a healthy gut flora, supports weight management through curbing cravings and prolonging satiety, and reduces risks of diabetes and heart disease1-3.
