Fabulous Fibre

The fact that fibre, whole-grains, fruit and vegetables are healthy should not come as a surprise, but their intake has decreased with the popularity of low-carb diets. With that in mind, research from the University of Cambridge has recently reconfirmed that fibre and whole-grain are important for long-term health. The recommended fibre intake is 30 g each day. But what does that look like?

  • Two Weetabix 3 g
  • One apple 4 g
  • Half a cup of rolled oats 9 g
  • One thick slice of brown bread 2 g
  • One potato with skin 2 g
  • One cup of cooked lentils 4 g
  • Two carrots 6 g
