Do you think you're getting enough fibre in a day? The adequate intake for dietary fibre in Canada is 14g per 1000 calories each day! That’s an average of 25 grams and 38 grams a day for women and men, respectively. On average, less than half of Canadians are meeting this requirement. Fibre is great for keeping your digestive system healthy and your body feeling fuller longer, meaning you'll snack less in between meals. Your gut plays such an important role with your immune system, so why not take extra care of it?
Generally, foods that are higher in fibre tend to be lower in added sugar. Some high fibre options include: fruits and vegetables, quinoa, brown rice, oats, nuts, and seeds. A major component of our meals and snacks at Fresh Fit Foods include an assortment of fruits and vegetables to help regulate your fibre intake for the day! All of our Simple dishes (e.g. Simple Chicken, Simple Beef) are paired with a brown rice & quinoa pilaf - a healthy and delicious combination!
